Hamilton, Out., Nov. 24.— ^^iob rule 
roigncd in Haniiltou bust niglit, 'niid as 
thu police wore unable lo cope with tlio 
crowd. Kcfjuliir soldiers from Toroulo 
were ordered to the scene. They arrived 
Iierc at lui early hour this inornlug under 
i.'(>nuuand of Capt. Ogilvie. The arrival 
of the troops caused the mob to disperse. 

An attempt was made by the street 
railway company to operate cars after 
dark and no siicli o.veltemcnt as fol- 
lowed was ever before seen in the 
sirccits of thi.s city. 

The entire police force was out, but 
it was wholly inadciiuate to control the 
uiol), wliii'li stoned cars, the radial rail- 
way and street railway offiue, the house 
where the strike breakers were (luar- 
tored and the front of Stanley Mills and 
company's store, and did considerable 

danmgo to other property, 

iShots were tired by llie police and oth- 
ers but fortunately no person was hit. 
Several pcrsoii.s, however, ■\\-ere injured 
by stouos uiul other jnissik-s that were 
thrown at car.s, but their injuries not of 
a serious nature. • 

Street cars were rii^'tonigUtjH'but not

SberilT Middleton, luid the police and

eral thousand whuh had collected in

F. W. DeCourcy O'lSrady, the general 
manager of tho Northern bank, with 
head<iuarters in Winnipeg, is in Victoria, 
visiting the extreme western braiu;h, aiul 
is accompanied l)y Cupt. Wm. Kobinson, 
the vice i)resideut. In eonvers«tlou\wltU 
a representative of the Colonist, Mr. 
O'Grady spoUe with entluisiasm regard- 
ing r.rltish Cohiiubia and predicts a 
graiul future f<jr Victoria. 

Continuing, he ^aid: "Few cities in 
Caiuida have the natural facilities to be- 
come wha'. it really is — a home for the 
tourist, a rest for tiie weary, a pttrMlse 
for the sportsman, and a good field for 
the speculator or one seeking what 
might lie* termed a safe investment. I 
should delight in spending a mouth or 
two in your well-kept, law-abldiug city, 
and have had a lot of trouble ill persuad- 
ing our vice president that there are 
other branches reiiuiring our preseiiee." 

•Speaking of the Northern ban!;, tli 
numager's remarks were conservative. A 
few statements of fact were given which 
Id prove that in nearly every venture 
promoted in western Canada, grntifyiiig 
results I'.ave followed. He said: "We 
have forty branches fully nianneil by 
iuen who liave invariably been eoiuiceied 
«-ilh the older Canadian banks; nnd in 
evei-y instance we have met wijh unso- 
licited support and .success. \\ luMi the 
share capital was offered to investors li 
was readily subscribed for, which meant our organization was completed 
aiul tho bank ready for business imich 
earlier than was anticipated. The same 
good fortune has followed fhroughout 
and although we opened oiu* first office 
not more than a year ago, we have 
more le;;i!ii;uile l)Usiness up'ui oiu' 
book.s today thiin we could have hoped 
for in double the lime." 

-VsUed regarding the \'icloria branch 
coming up to ijxiiectations, .Mr. O'drady 
was emi)liatie in pronouncing tlie brancli 
(Uie of the most successful. Jlr. Hootli 
has .surprised us in <iuanlity ami quality 
and we appreciate the hearty snpiiort 
accorded by older banks and the people 
of Victorio.

.Naples, Nov. 21. — Preceded by loud 
(leKuiutioUH, another piutioii of the cra- 
ter of Mount Vesuvius on the side near- 
est Pompeii coUaiiseil. today and the 
volcano threw ashes, cinders and smoke, 
which rose like an immense timbrelhi. 
Prof. Matteucci, director of the Uoyal 
oliservntpry on Mount Vesuvius, con- 
tinues to declare there is no danger of 
an eruption. ' 

' There was a largo crowd at the formal

mented by one from the .M. K. Smith &

berL was kept busy receiviii;^ visitors and 
escorting them through tho apartuioni:. 
Throughout the pioceedinj;s .sv.-eet music 
was discoursed by Itaiitly'.s orchestra. 

If tho success of the opening may be 
taken as an augury of the future there 
is no doubt thtit the o.vhibition will de- 
velop into a most interesting and in- 
structive attractiou :tj> the nuiny tourists 
who pass through the city every year. 
'Already tho secretary has applications

Nowiiaven, Conn,, Xov. 2-1. — Yale's 
bright blue banner w.-ives triumphantly 
over the city touiglit, the signal of an- 
other niagniliccut victory of its football over its worthy rival. Harvard, 
tiie tin.-il ,-^core being (i lo tl. 

'1,'lic crimson went deiwu to defeat in 
a (iesperale liatilc, which in football 
strategy and specliicular iilays lias had 
few eipials since the two universities 
lirsL nict. 

To Vale passes the almost undisput- 
able title of the (oUege chamiiionsliip 
of (he United States, <;loudcd only by 
the drawn conlesi at I'riueeton a week 
ago. It was a victory won through 
greater football knowled^'c, suiierior 
team pluy, almost unerring accuracy in 
developing the possibilitiea of the new 
rules, and through the magnificent work 
of individual players. 

In going to defeat, Harvard proved a 
focman worthy of respect. The men re- 
peatedly shone conspiL-uously, and tho 
Ihi.shes of brilliancy in individual play 
IIS time and again ilic backs broke 
through the line of blues or the stal- 
warl guard sent the hall twisting 
through the air for long gains, seemed 
to lie entitled lo a reward. Harvard 
was slow in execiiiing phiz's, which, as 
last .\ear, seemed to liinge on the great 
slreiiglli on ilefi'Ucc, while Yale Ava.s 
iinick on everything. Yale's success lay 
ill playing offensively at every oppor- 
tunity, driving the plays hard and tak- 
ing advantage of every opening when 
the opponents hud the play. Interfer- 
ence for the run forward and lieliiiid 
the line passes and the side kicks were 
a well developed art. >'ol ouco did a 
Yale man have to run down the licbl 
without assistance. As tiie game was 
Hearing its closi', Yale played liercer and 
rolled the Crimson line into a Ilea)) lime 
and again. It was only Harvard iiieirs 
stubborn contest of every inch of their 
own ground that kept the score at the 
single iigures. 

The touchdown was Ijrought about 
by a sensational play. Yale had the bull 
on Harvard's 2."j line, xvlien .fones call- 
ed his si«-iials for a kick from the for- 
mation. Veeder droppeil back to the 'Mi 
yard line with his hands outspread, a 
perfect pass from HocUenburger sent- 
thc ball into his hands, and Veeder like 
a Hash started right augles atul hurled 
the ball over the heads of the Harvard) 
men for a 30-yard luiss, to where sever' 
al Yale men, as though drawn l>y a 
magnet, bad jumped into one little 
knot. I'll from their midst leaped 
Forbes, who -caught the ball and in au 
instant placed it down on the 10 yard 
line. Up rose the Yule hosts with cries 
of "Touch down!" while the (Jrimson 
was bushed in fear. Itoonie, who liiul 
replaced Knox, was sent lo smash tho 
Crimson lines. His lirst try gave two 
vards, and tlie next liiuo he was shot 
liver with tho whole team dragging and 
pushing him. That four yards showed 
what Yale cotild do when himgry for the 
score which was close, at hand. Tho 
kieklng of a goal was an easy thing for 
VerdedlV There were several anxious 
moments for tlie Vale men, for while 
Harvard never had possession of the 
bill insiih' of the 'J.'" yard line, twice 
Vale WHS lined up with tlie ball m the 
shadow of its goals, and in each case, 
lo remove the danger and to get dis- 
tance. Vcrdeer dropped back of the goal 
line nnd punted. 

The game was alleiiiled by all the lU- 
terestiiiii iucidenls which become a part 
of it. 'i'lie gridiron was framed with a 
mass of humnnily, out of which three 
sides were blue and the other crimson. 
The cheering and singing, while good, 
fell short of that in previous years, ex- 
plainable by tl>e fact that the game was 
played so fast tliat spectators did not 
have time to pay much attention to the 
cheers of leiidcr.s. 

Not a scat was vacant, and at llia 
;:ate a few stray tickets liroiifilil plie- 
nonieiial iirices. one pair eliaugiu;; hands 
al .'s.'if'. The game opened under grey 
shies, and was concluded in radiant sun- 
shiue and under a canopy of blue.

their lust aiipeanuicd at; Oak Bay and 
for a time the Wearies 'ihatl. all they 
could do to hold aielr- own /arid at linlf 
tiuK! neither side had scored, although 
both forward lines had some very line 

In Uio first half llu> piny was fairly 
even and the (Jircalcr piirt of the play 
was ill the centre lioliJ, imt ■\v.hen the 
ball came wilhin slrikin;; ilistance of the 
jjoal llii' players were nimble to play it. 
Towards Ihc close of the lirst halt the 
Wanderers niailn a dosperale cflort to 
score and (ioward put in a very preliy 
.sIhii, which just i^irazod Iho crosa bar. 

In llio second lialf both teams played 
even harder than in the first; and it 
was not long before Pcdeii inado the 
first score for the Wanderers. The 
\A'csts tried hard to even Uio score, but 
Todd put the Wanderers further ahead 
by scoring the second goal, after a 
very pretty shot. 

'I'ho A'ietoria West then took a brace 
and after a good piece of play Miller 
scored tlicir ooly goal. For a time ibe 
Wearies pressed their opponents and a 
penally was giveu agaiust the Victoria 
West; but no score was obtained, the 
ball striking the cros.s bar. 

During tlic hitter part of Ihe nuitch 
Iho A'ictoriii West players had ilccided- 
ly the best of it, but were \wiable to 
score and time was called witli tlic Wan- 
derers lending. 

Owing to the unsatisfactory state of 
III!' lield it would be uufuir to mention 
one player above another for briliiaut 
Work. Corp. AVardcr gave good satis-

Regiment Defeated 

The game at Work I'oint between Ihc 
Y. M. C. A. and Fiftli Ucginiciit re- 
sulted in a will for the former by the 
score of 5 — 0. It was very unevenly con-

In conseiiuence ol llie absence of the

In the iialf, Xorlh Ward secured 
three soals, l'i<den scoring two anil Tay-

James Bay Defeated 

In the Husby match between the C!en-

reversed the result of the last match, 
and won out by tlirei? tries to nil. Like 
the otlier games, this was ooiisiilernbly 
liampered by the rain; but despite this 
drawback, it was shown that Victoria 
possessi!s smile very tine young players, 
who. with a little experience, will devel- 
op iiilo really lirst class footballers. 

The fefeiitrals had the best of Ihe 
match and during- the second half were 
Iiressing cpntilinously.

consiilcnibly by the addiliou of Hariuu'lc 
and .Macrne, who save Ilii; younger play- 
ers Ihe beuelii of Ihcir e.'cpenence in 
their endeavors to teach llicm Ihe gami?. 

In the tirsl half the. play was very 
even, and wiieu Ihe whistle called baU'

sniniiig lda>-. it was iiuickly seen thai 
the Centrals possessed iiKU'e stamina 
Ihun Ibeir oppoueut.s. and soon begun 
lo press. After a little hard wtirk they 
pushed .leffs over the line for the lirst

and the lliird "irv was made by Haker.

Don O. CamcTon, Hualdaburg, Oal., Trcas. Civil Sorvlco Reform Club, -writes: 
"I am glad to speak a word for Peruna to all those who are afflicted with 

catarrh of tho lungs as I was for years and for which I could find no reliei 

until I tried yoiir valuable remedy. 

.'i "I had no appetite and had lost much, in weight and could not sleep at night. 
The slightest exertion tired me and I had given up in despair. I always had 
si little hacking cough, my lungs felt sore, and my hack ached. 

"After taking two bottles of Penina I felt so much better and looked so much 
better that my friends were both pleased and astonished. I continued taking 
the medicine until now I am perfectly well." 



ALL organs of tho body are lined •witli 
mucous membranes. Any of.theso 
torgaas are, therefore, liable to catarrh, 
f Catarrh is a congestion of the mucous 
'membrane, which procedcs true Inllam-

fThe victim of catarrh of tho lungs is 

liable at any moment to develop con

In addition to Ihe foregoing reconi-

curreil in certain other recoinmetidalioiis 
to -ivliich the Wasliington special lish 
commission gave their adhesion. Thi'sc; 
I'l-cominotida lions, from an iuleriiationiil 
point of view, are most important, ami 
we i-cgai'd them as esseiilial l.i an , ef- 
fective eonjoinl scheme of soekeye con-

Re Washington Waters 
(I.) We are nf opinion ami fully agree 
with the recomiiiemiat ion id' the Wasli- 
ington special lish commission, that the 
rcgiilalioii contaim^l in llie Washingioii 
slate lishei-y |,iws, prohibiting u trap- 
oNviioi- fi-niii holding a salmon trap site 
unless a Hail is erected ami operateil 
llierooii, he amended so that a. tra|i sitc^ 
granted to a 1 raii owiiei- may be Jield by 
siieli ti-apowiier provided that a trap 
net lie built or o|ieraleil thereon for at 
least tine season ia four; provided, ;ilso, 
that .-in iucreaseil f<'e or rental be ro- 
(juired to he paid in those years in which 
tho trail Is not ojieraled on the site held. 

(11.) Wo arc of opinion that lo ensure 
the efl'octive enforcement of tho law, 
and. to .safeguard salmon trap-owners 
against vexatious legal proceeding.s, the 
trial of cases of violation of the trap 
legnlatipus In the state ot Wn-shington 
should be placed in the hands of the 
sitiierior eotn'ts of that stale. 

(III.) We are of Yii)iuion (hat a dose 
sr-ason for soekeye salmon slioulil be en- 
forceiLiii the .state of Washington from 
-Vug. W to Sept. .1(J (both days inclusive). 
This Would afford necessary additionnl 
proiection to the lute schools of sock- 
eyes, and would ensure uniformity in 
the closing of the soekeye traps along 
Ihe shores of the st.-ite of Washington. 

(H'.l We are of opinion, iiiid strongly 
stated this view at llie international <-ou- 
feretieo ou Sept. li), thai, the state of 
U'as'liiiiglon legislature should be urged 
lo make a distinct and ailoipiate ajipro- 
priation for the proper enforcement of 
the laws framed for the proteetiou aiid 
preservation of tlie salmon .supply i" 
the waters of the sli'te. 

(V.) We are of o|)inion that tho mini- 
mum iienalty for a violation of the salm- 
on trail laws should he .^2,"i0, as smaller 
linos arc held not to be deterrent. It 
may iu .some -casps^be profitable to pay 
a line , if of small iU)!ioUnt, and commit 
the violation. ..We. lirgc that $2'i0 be the 
miuimmu penjilty 'for violations of trap 
regulations referriid to in tlu' state of 
Washiuglon, and we may pchit out that 
reoominoudalimis No, 7. on jiage 7 of 
this report, is ou . the s,-imi> lines, anil 
we have urged its emliodimeut in the 
l>omiuiou lisherv laws of British Colum- 

Had the ma.iority of the cmnmhssion 
omitted from its report the recommen- 
dation lo make tho weekly close lime on 
the river longer than ihat in outside 
waters, I .should have contented myself 
wth the remark that the limitation to 
residents of the right to lish above the 
>ret\- Westminster bridge should nat ap- 
ply to "ibig run" years;, and tliat, .say. 
".") meslics insteail of 60 only, should 
have been allowed In soekeye nets. The 
evidence taken by the commission 1 
think fully supports both these conten- 

Hnt against tiie recommoiidation to 
make the close lime on the river iweu- 
ty-four hours longer than ou outside 
waters, I hog lo ente'r the strongest pro- 

The chief olijoctioiis to it are: 
Lit -would subordinate the rights of 
our own lishormeii to the iirolil and ad- 
vaiitiigo of i\u\ I'uget Soniul tishing iii- 
lorosls to an extent which the latter 
neillier asked for nor oxiieided. aud in 
return for which we should receive noth- 

-'. It n'ould bo fl most unjust discrim- 
ination in favor of the .liipauese as 
against the white tishermou, and would 
make it unprolilahle for most of the lat- 
ter, who tu-o si'ttled along tho riverside, 
to conliiine in llie husiiu'ss. 

a. Its value as a measure of protec- 
tion (if 'it wore necessary, which it is 
not) would be doubled by reversing it; 
making the longer closi,' time outside 
the i-ivoi-. 

I. 1 1 was brought bef .iio the (-omniis- 
^ioii in exeeillive .sessieii at almost tho 
last iiossilile moment. There was no oji- 
portiinily lo take evidence with regard

Wilson, tishei-y guardian, said (report 
of evidence, page Oo, answer ^Ir. Ualll. 
"Well, we'll say that tho close time 
above New Westminster bridge was ex- 
tended until II o'clock Sunday night — 
Ihcre would be no fish here on Monday 
inoruing — the gales would bo closed." 
The same witness said (page 50, answer- 
ing Mr. Taylor), 'tThe moutirof the 
river i.s •completely barred throughout 
the wei'k," Similar ovidenco was given 
by n number of witnesses, tishei'iuon, 
lish dealiM-s and cannors. f)f Iho points 
as to which the commission look evi- 
dence, mine Mas more clearly establish- 
ed than (.hat of the effective barring of 
the river moittli liy nets. If then these. 
b;irriiM-s be in oprralitin at the moulli of 
liic river for twciity-foiir hours before 
lisliiiig in the river liegius, it follows 
that the hitter would be of liltli> value. 
Tho practical elfecl of the regitlatlou 
would be lo close- the river against fish- 
ing, the fish being caught oulsidc,, by 
seines and traps, and by. those tishermen 
who conic to I'lie river for the soekeye 
neason only, the great 'majority of whom 
arc .laiianeso. Om- resident fishermen, 
wlio are iiormaneut settlers, would be 
driven out -of the biisiuess. 

y. Side channels, shoals, and snags 
make it impossible to bar any part of 
lh<! river by nets. Of the lisli wliicli get 
fairly into the river, ji good percentage 
will go through to the spawning 
grounds. 'This was repeated by witness 
after witness, and is proved by the ex- 
liorience of the present season. On the 
other hand, it is possilile to establish a 
puelly effective barrier of nets ou the 
s;indheads, just outside the rivei'. Plain- 
ly, therefore, if the close time is to be 
lengthened iu auy one part of the Fra- 
ser river", iis a measura -of protection, 
the longer closo time shoulil be outside 
the river. Hut the jiroposed regulation 
is not upcessary, 'J'lic run of this soa- 
.son (If)Oti) was a small one; fishing 
nhovo Now Wcstinin.fter ibridge was in 
full swing; deep and long nets were in 
use, and yet there Were in the liatcliery 
pens at the beginning of Septeinlier, al- 
most enough soekeye to stock all the Do- 
minion luitchenos to their full capacity, 
and the soekeye have been vniiiiiiig in 
eoiisiderable numbers during the whole 
of the nicinth. 

-1. On this |)oiiit 1 do not care, in an 
olUcial report, to do more than cite Ihi! 
fuel that a recommendation (previously 
assented to) to keep the ship channel at 
Ihe month of the river free from nets (a 
regulation- of considerable value as a 
protective measure, and which would 
liave been of some advantage to our 
resident fishermen) .was struclc out, and 
this drastic recommcudation, ■ tlie,.efl'cct 
of which would bo to dri-^e; hundreds of 
the best class of our. fisliermen out of 
the business, was substituted ami 
brought bid'oro the comniissioii, as I 
have said, at tlio last moment. 

In conclusion, I beg to point out that 
every ro.strictioii proposed operates, or 
would operate, to the disativantago of 
our resident wliico fishermen, aud to 
their disadvantage only, except, periiaps, 
the nbolitiou of the double length net.

ecclesiastic? was present at tho conse-

erected at The Oratory, Blnnlnglmiii. in

ci-oclhig this iiieinorlal to .\e\\ man.

/\^'p do not wish to croiitr falso iilcus 
of "vvliaC is in .store for Victoria and Vuii- 
coiivcr Island, but of .this We are .cer- 
tiiin, namely that good . times arc ahead. 
(Let no one suppose tbat the prosperity 
is- going to Iks couSncd to Victoria and 
is going to consist of ii more or less ac- 
tive movement in real estate. Tliis is 
ouly an incident of the comiii}; prosper- 
ity, and one npon whicli it is not wise 
to count too liij,dily. When Jiiatters liavn 
more fully developed it will be seen that 
tliere are i>tlior lofalitios on Iho Island 
towards wliioh invpstons will turn their 
eyes and wlipio llioy will place their 
jnoney. This is a hi^ Island and has 
only recently hcnn discovered, and it i.s 
soiii^' to liiki' ;i prreat many people and 
a great many dollars to iitilizc aii the 
openings which will shortly be present- 
od. Thcreforo wc repeat onr caution tlic inllntiou of values. 

WJiilc the Colonist wonld be very 
anuch pleased to gee the rapid growth 
of^ Viotoria, it looks forward with ercii 
greater interest to the development of 
the whole Island, for thi.s it will he that 
will make \'ictorin a jrrcat city. The 
inOu.v of people, who arc seeking for 
pleasant homes, will afford a very sat- 
isfactory basis of prosperity, but what 
wo are looking for is the growth of (he 
<.'ity because it is the oomiucrcial centre 
of the richest 15,000 square miles on the 
.face of the earth, and a seaport, that In 
.spile of all that pessimists may .say, will 
.within a few years, become the terminus 
of 'more -than ouc trans-eontiuental rail- 

And in (his connection wn want to 
make a reference to the propo.sal tu 
Ibuilil an :ill-rnil line to the Mainland. 
'This work must not be relegated to 
some indehiiite jjcriod in the future. It 
i.s of great present imporlance. It is 
idle to talk about our limp coming. Our 
time will come when we make up our 
lulnd that 'it must com*. If one-half of 
ivhat is promised for A'aucouver Island

wonder tliat any one was so short sighted 
as to be discouraged la. advqcatlbg an 
hll-ruil line to the Mainland because it 
will something like ,'?l.S,aOO,000. 

Xow is the time for action, and we 
hope the Island representatives in Par- 
iiamentwill realize it, and unite their ef- 
forts with those of the people here to 
place this great undertaking in the list 
<jf public works to beamdertkken In the

greater interest taken by these non-party 
people iu the active work of politics, not 
ouly by coming to tho polls to , vote, but 
by takiug partUn- ;,.tlio^; W cam- 
paigns.' We all depjijriB' corruption, but 
there would be vastly less of it, if it 
v,-ere known more generally how the non- 
party vote was going. When votes ure 
obtained toy improper means, It is be- 
cause of the uncertainty as to how the 
unpronounced element of the electorate 
is going to cast its ballots. 

So far the reference has been to the 
larger sphere of citizenship, v In the 
more res'tirlc'ted field of mtinlcipni politics 
there is room for great imporvomcnt. Re- 
cently tliree by-laws have been submitted 
to the ratepayers. Two of them were 
defeated; one of tbeniw was carried but 
ill each instance tlie number of votes 
polled was very small, and yet a great 
deal of erf(n-t was put forwarci in nil 
diree cases to got people to the polls 
The people take astonishtngiy little In 
tcrest In the mayoralty and nldermanic 
elections and it is very difficult to get 
men to accept noinin.'iLions for oitlier of 
these offices. Yet there is no aspect of 
i)ubUc, affairs which comes most closely 
home to the community. Hence wc feel 
that an effort to stimulate an apprecia- 
tion of the demands of citizenship is

„ The theme of many sermons iu the 
city today will be the duties of citizen- 
,ship, and during the week meetings will 
■he held at which the same very impor- 
tant subject will he considered. This 
somewhat unusual incident is due to the 
ibfforts of the Citizens' League, and it 
bugbt to lead to excellent results. We 
tlo not know that the iicopic of Victoria 
jieed lessons in citi/.enship more tlmn any 
filhor people, but we have yet to learn of 
a coniniuuity that would not be the bet- 
ter for u fre(|uent reminder of the ob- 
■ligHtions resting upon wlio con- 
stitute the bi)ily i)nlitic. In Canada we 
hear very niiicli of the necessity of i)arty 
fcally. It has become almost a craxe 
■with some people; although these of 
course arc iu the small minority. Within 
certain neees.'^Hry liinitation.s a good 
l)arty man must be a ;;o(>ii citizen. He 
may not always he able to discriminate 
Ibetwcen what is for tho bcuctit of his 
own political organization and what is 
f<ir Ihe pulilii- adv.TUtage, but he at le:ist 
lakes an active iuli'rcsi in public affairs, 
and works witli all Ills energy to pro- 
imiie party success, which he can eas- 
ily porsnadc himself is synonymous wiili 
the general welfare of tho country. He 
may be very open to critipisn^, but Ik-

pulilic question.s, and between the Upper

The people, who need to he stimulated 
5n respect to the duties of citizenship, 
are those who hold aloof from active 
participation in i)oliiieal life, the people 
who hasten to tell yow that they have 
no •time or taste for politics, the people 
■wIio do little to promote the adviince- 
anent of the country along tliosc lines 
which can only be dealt with througli 
the medium of politics, and who are in 
the habit of complaining very loudly 
when things happen to ;;o wrong, al- 
ihough they rarely complain when it will 
do any. good. It is not necessary to be 
« party man to be a good citizen, but, 
ispcaking generally, Uiere are very few 
<jucstious, upon whidi an intelligent 
man cannot place himself in harmony 
with one or the other of . the great politi- 
cal parlies. Yet it is not by any means 
undesirable that there should ho a largo 
clement in (he cotnmunity without any 
ili.xed polilif-a! jirtilialionP, provided 
Ihoso who constitute it take tlie trouble 
to keep themselves informed upon (he 
questions of the day, ond when elec- 
tions corao around, identify themselves 
with the party, which most nearly meets

The Colonist does not oftea speak of 
itself. In fact it mentions its own name 

only, as a rule, for the sake of avoid- 
ing a too constant use of tJie editorial 
"we." But it is tempted to depart a 
little from its custom this morning for 
the information of its readers. This 
morning, as on every Sunday nn>rning 
for several months, the L'olonisl is giv- 
ing the public upwards of one hundred 
thousand words of reading matter, which 
is as much as is contained in any of the 
magazines and much more tlian most of 
them print. It tell.s the nous of tho 
world, in brief it is true, but its j-cad- 
ers do not much in the i-durse of 
a year that is worth telling. It gives 
the news of the city and province, the 
former with a detail and variety sur- 
passed by no paper in Canada and 
eiiualled hy few. It (rea(s of current 
questions in a nmnner, which it hopes 
is not wholly uninteresting. It aids 
the ladies to some extent in regard to 
matters supposed to be peculiarly within 
Iheir jurisdiction. It lin.s much gooii 
wholesome reading of a general chiiractcr 
It tells some good stories, nud those 
who like a little poetry will find some 
of (he best specimens of cun-ont verse. 
Today it has an article on tlie Llindu.s 
from Mr. Robert 'Dunn, a member of its 
regular -.staff, and one on Canadian Ii(- 
erafure from the pen of Mr. Clivb Phil- 
lipps-Wolley, l)Oth notable and timely

In the second section of today's Colon- 
ist will he found an article dealing withj 
the proposed Hudson Hay route to Ku- i 
rope. Since it was written n summary! 
of some observatiou.s made by Mr. Wil- 
liam Mclnnis, of tlie Geological Depart- 
nien(, upon the "lands lying between tho 
lower Saskati-hewan and (he upper wa- 
ters of the (,'liurchill has reached us, .-ind 
in order that (Iio inCormaliou bearing 
direi;(ly upon (he subject of the article 
referred (o may be placed before our 
readers iu as complete a form as is pos- 
sible in a newspaper, wo ;;ivo some of 
(he i)rineipal fatds in Mr. .Mclnnis' re- 
|ioi-t. The northern limit <-if the area 
ulii-;h lie has o.vplored is in la(i(ndc r>G 
dcg. This was once regarded as form- 
ing a part of the Barren Lands. It is 
in fact a great forosl-covered .area, ly- 
ing at an altiluiie of from Till) to 'Jl)(l 
feet above tlic sea, tlio soil being of 
sedimentary formation and very fertile. 
Mitherto those persons, who have paid 
any allenlion to the coiuitry, have sup- 
IHisi'd that it was a region, -ivlii'ie sum- frosts would render agricullure im- 
possible, btit iMr. Mclnnis reports that 
during ids stay in the country there was 
only one night when the freezing point 
was reacheil hetwoen (he middle of .Tunc 
and the '2'Hh of .Sei)tember. lO.xcept ion- 
ally goixl pidatoes am raised in every 
part of (he district wliero tho Indians 
have lakcu the trouble to plant them. 
In the lower part of the area, that is 
in latitude .">! deg., Indian corn ripens 
every year. 'I'he si^'nili<'anei' <d' tli.'-sT

area suitable for settlement iu that part 
of the country, in which Manitoba and 
eastern Saskatchewan are situated, (o bo

uto miles. It has been known for a long 
time that agricultural Canada-. attaiiieil 
great brcudtli towards the mouutuius, 
bitt there has alway.s been a (,'rcat ileal 
of doul)t about its northerly c.vtent in 
more easterly longitudes. The iufurma- 
(ion, which air. aiclouis makes public is 
therefore of very great interest, and fiir- 
idshcs an additional reason for a rail- 
way to Hudson Bay. 


Can it be possible that Sve fn Canada 

»ro as ignorant of eonditious iu (he Unit- 
ed Kingdom as people M-lu) gain ndnns- 
siou to tlie papers there are of Canada V 
Wc are quiiij prepared to admit an abun- 
dant lack of information among the peo- 
ple of tho Dominion generally about 
things British, but then we usually 
have sense enough to keep quiet about 
tiieiu,,.and not make a needless exliibi- 
tion of oiir waiit of knowledge. Tho lat- 
est exhibition of British concern iu the 
welfare of this land is a fear that yming 
unmarried Englishmen, coming to Can- 
ada, may marry the daughters of im- 
migrants from the United States, and 
there will ho the ndschief (o play in con- 
sequence. The jeremiad on the sulijeel 
reminds one or (no ufth chap(er of Cieii- 
esis, which tells of (ho dire resuKs of 
certain mixed mnrriages in days long 
gone by. The wrKer of it seriously rec- 
omiuonds that every young fellow con- 
templating emigration to Canada should 
take unto himself a wife, so (hat (ho 
Imperial tie may be sirengthened by 
nuptial ties. 'Now. to the proposed rem- 
edy wo have no objeeiiuu lo make. A 
nice, clean, yoiinK lOnglishniau is the 
most welcome of all inimigranls, and he 
is doubly so when lie brings wi(h him 
a bright young English- girl to be tho 
partner of his joys and sorrows. ::Mny 
(he power (hat presides over (he desdn- 
iiti(ui of couiuries send us many such. 
They cannot come in (oo grcit number.s. 

But there is no particular necessity 
for establishing a matrimonial bureau 
in conned ion wi(h (he iinuiigi-a(ion de- 
partment, lest the unwary ropi-eseu(ativo 
o£ Johu Bull should be snared ou his 
arrival 'by some designiug Yankee girl, 
niifmated by a desire to see the Stars 
and Stripes waving over Canada. In- 
dividually lliere is a danger that the un- 
attached youth may bo a victim of an- 
nexation, but the process will be intlivid- 
Uttl, not national. When he is caught, 
ho need not he (ho afraid (hat his 
captor will try to iniikc him any the less 
a Hriton than he was when he h.-fl his

Yankee luaidon is not loyal, but be-

whicli she lives. In fact, ■we do not know 
any J)etter way to put a stop to any in- 
cipient notions of territorial annexation, 
which the fair maidens from south of

able to express any criticism on the find- 
ings of (ho comnnssion in any way (hat

A Mainland paper speaks of tho way 
in which the goverinnent has been gel- 
tin.L; rid of (ho provincial (imbcr laiuls. 
What absohUt! nonsense it is (o talk 
that way. U is (rue (hat a large nnui- 
lier of timber licenses have been applied 
fur during (he last few months, but it is true that the legislature can at any 
time, raise the annual rental to auy de- 
sired-figure, nnd thus either force the li- 
censees to give up their holdings, if they 
jire ke(!ping them for speculation, or pay 
very handsomely into the provincial 
treasury for retaining them. It is all 
very well to oppose a government, but 
why extend the hostility to the prov- 
ince? -( .

\As today is Sunday, and the shop.s

Not that we are weak as'a nalinn in 
literature, or, as far as I know, in any 
eajiaeit.v, but that, 1 fear, if the Irnlii 
were told, we eare,;as a (leople, a ^reat 
deal more for the. lu'atcrlal things of 
this world than avo do for any spiritual 
matters or beauties of tlic' Intellect. 

And, first, 1 am driven to ask, what 
is literature today? — because it seems 
lliat the meaning of the word e]iaii;,'es 
witli the a^es. 1 liiid tlmt the people of 
tlie literary world used to bo elassed as 
poets, drainatisis, iioviMists, historians, 
iiielaiihysieal writers, l lieolimians, biog- 
raphers, ami travelers. llow many of 
either ohiss <locs Cainnla Imasl today? 
ami, if slic boasts of very few in any 
cl.-. -s, why is it ? 

As a niattei of faet, it is inueh the 
.same with all nations as it is with Caii- 
iida. Literature lias come to mean novel 
wriliiij,', and nolliili;; ■ else. The poet 
used to reif-'ii supri-nie. Today he is 
nearly extinct as the Dodo, and a.s lit- 
.tle regretteil. ICvcn Kiplinj;'.s strong 
voice is rarely heard singing in these 
lust few month.s; hnirciites' songs are 
rare and iitful; the sweet Irish singer 
■vvii(»:;'',sanar uildcr a -woman's name and 
with a- woman's delicacy, was revealed 
to us a.s a man by his reeeiit' death, ■ 
and 'Mr. Alfred Xoyes lias lilackwood'.s 
pages and the role of iioct almost to 
liiiiiself. Why is IliisV Is it beeauso lit- 
erature is a relloction of life, and our 
lives today are so ihin and mean that 
(here is iiolliiiig in tlieni to retlecl, or 
is it beoause llie literary man's fellows

new froiu the proceedings of llie Itoyal 
yneiety of Camula for IS'.tt), the year in 
which the Dominion lost its sweetest 
.singer, Mr. .Vrchibahl Laiiipman, and its 
oldest historian. Dr. lvin.:;sforcK Soeak- 
im; of liiese Uvo, the I'roceedings .say: 
".V Canadian world which, now thai he 
(Mr. Laniinnan) is beyond all eanlily as- 
pirations and ambitious, is willing to 
pay a iribule of esteem and admiration, 
which it forgot lo give him in the davs 
when some generous appreciation might 
'have saved him some billerncss and en- 
couraged liim to greater effort." 

To Dr. Kiugsford 's memory a chair

But apart from all questions of honor, 
cotnes the serious question of pay, and 
its direee inlluonee upon tlio national lit-

This stale of affairs might n-ot be

It is iiist as bad if you write for the

Text of Resolution Passed by Local 
Branch of Canadian Labor Party. 

.^t a rA'Piit special ineetiu;; of the 
\'icloria liranch of the Caniidian Labor 
Iiarly, I bo followiui; resolution was iiitro- 
diiccfl and laid over for fuller discus- 
.'iion at tlio next general niectiug on Dec. 

"liesidved tliiil we, the A'icloria lu'anch 
of the Canadian I,abor iiarty liereby 
enter an oiii|ihalic protest a;:iiiiist the 
iiilliix of lliiidiis iiilo western Canadn. 
lielicviiiK the siiine to be inimical to tlic 
best interests of ihe ciuinlry. 

•'While wu liave no ill-feelins townrdi! 
tlicsc people and recognize the unrviccs 
Ihoy have rendered to the Kmpirc, we 
also recognize the fact that they are 
bettor off in their own land. The fact 
lliat llipy cnunot n.ssiniilaic with while 
people is fully roeosnized by the Pritisli 
Iie<iple in India and is the strongosl iir- 
Cuineiit a;:aiiiKl adniittinn them into ;i 
new coiinlry ivliero the sreatost possible 
cohesion is desired. Like the (.'liiucse, 
illicy are dislincl from us in race, re- 
li;;ion, and soda! instinids. Tlio pres- 
ence of a coolie class tends always to 
dc;;raile the wliite workers v,it!i whom 
Ibey necessarily associate, and 
their low habits aiul standards of living 
are a coiiiiniial menace to tlic Wage- 
earners (d' tiie country. 

"Having' these tliiii,i;s in view we call 
upon the Doiiiiiiioii piveniiiieiit to lake 
iiiiinediate steps lo idieck the iminiKra- 
liou of these undesirable people into 
our country." 

With tlie approach of the civic elec- 
tions there is inueli speculation as to 
Ihe prospective candidalos for luayorally 
and aldermnnic honors. The contest 
will be unifiiio iirits way as it will bo 
tlio .lirst time tliat voting will occur 
under the live ward system. l!y the 
new ■system thi^ number of aldermen 
will lie increased to leu — two from each 
ward. The subdivision of the cily will 
niateriaily nffeet the diauccs of some 
of the candidates as they -inay not, re- 
ceive tlie same support as under the 
three ward sy.stera. The how arraiiKOineiit 
is also expected to cause considerable 
troulile on election day as tlio nnijorilv 
of the voters are not yet aware in wliicli 
ward Ihoy are roKislered, and the ;,'real- 
er portion of tlioin will iiiiike no at- 
temiil lo asccrlaiii lill ihe day ot elec- 
tion. The former .North ■ ward has been 
practically divided into two sciiarate sec- 
tions, while the olliei' wards have been 
so arranged that the five are about 
eipnilly ilividcd, so far as tlie assessed 
value of the iiroperly i.s concerned. 

Ill Ihe ma.yoralty i-oiilcst llie preseiil 
iiicniiibeiil intends lo stand for ro-elcc- 
tiou. Whan seen yest(!rday on Ihc 
<inoslimi he said: "1 can sec no reason 
for withdrawing'. I am enlindy in the 
haud.s of tlie eitizoiis; and if Ihoy wish 
me to stiind for' election I will do so hut 
I do not intend to force myself on the 
public."' • ' ' ■

This the Statement Made 
Superintendent. of Educa- 
tion Robinson ; 


"We have ''VuiV'ctVileii' 'irr pfaciiig th6 
eurriculuiii of the public' s.hools of Brit- 
ish Coluniiiia iipiiii a I'airly linn basis," 
remarked .Superiuteiidcut of Kdueiiiiou 
Kobinson ycsterdny. This.;' ' slUtement

of sitidios now in vogue Ihrougliout the 
lirovince. .Mr. Itohinsoii. .'ifl>'r answer- 
ing in the negative, said ilial llie sys- 
Icin was satisfaciorv and. ilicn'rore, nut 
likely to be allcrcil. Of c.oui-se lliere 
would be slight changes from lime to 
time. Tliat could mil bi' avoiiled, but 
tliey would not anioiint to anyihiug. 

His alteiilioii was drawn lo a firocl.-i- 
iiialion which apiieared in a recent issue 
<if Ihe (ianelle to the idfcci that cerliiin 
hooks, one a history of hhigbiml, would 
be iulroduci'd in the near -Jul lire. Mv. 
Itoliinson explained lliis liy poiiiling out 
thai Ihc history of ilic world was cin- 
siaiilly lii'ing aii;:nii'iileil liy events lliat 
w-ere ocriirring from day to day. Xot_ 
only was iliis so. bill ihe researches of 
liisini'iaiis were liriiigiiig , 1 o liglu facts 
which had to be included in the books 
which were placed . before Ihe rising gen- 
erations for their instrn'etibii. Much lite 
same was. Ihe cuse with-.olhor cotirses. 
i'or instance, there had been witliin ihi! 
past few years - a "run" on viu lical 
wrliing. Kocpiitly ' the sontlnieut of all 
Ihose coiicerueii Iniil begun to change, 
rriie feeliii- now w-as I hat il was not 
the best sysleni and, coiiseiiiienl ly, 
many of Ihe leacliers were leacliiiig oilier 
iiietl'iod.s. He. didn't know' whelher the 
veriical would pass out of favor alio- 
gether lull il looked as if tinit would 
ijiriive Ihe case. 

.Mr. lliiliiiison went on lo I'omnieut on 
Ihe ilill'ereiit reiiuircmenls of various geii-- 
'eralions in respect to study. .\ sid of 

books which would sail ■ class could 

not lie adapted to aiiolher. ■ .\s a I'lde had boon ,.cun.sidered the correct 
guide to the studies of our forefathers 
would not be tolerated in tlie iireseni 
ilccade. It was a difficult thing to ex- 
plam but, nevertheless, its autlicnticity 
could not ho denied. For thiit reas<iu. 
although ii appoareil lo him llnit a sound 
basis for- tlie i'lirrieuluiii of the llrilish 
Coluinbia schools hull been irilained .'ifiei' 
coiisiderabh' e.Kperiiuent. it would be al- 
lered and aiigniculed in Ihe ciiurse of 

I'lider llie iireseiil condiiioii Superiu- 
li'iiileul Itobiusiin believed lliat ihe 
studies ailopled by llie iioard 'if ediica- 
liort for llrilish C.ilniniiia lilli'd ihe re- 
(piireiiieiil.s in evei-y resiioet. It was 
giving splendid siilisfaci ion .•uid did no; 
liee.'J unieildiug except perliaps oecuoioii- 
all.v in a . fe-\v^ uiinov particulars, 

This is sometlllng' to set politfcal-'ccou^;: 
oinists thinking very seriously, It is n,'i 
resvousibility too vast - to be measured 
by injure ligures, or described la mere 

No fanciful theories, untried niothod.s, 
or mere esperlinants nre proposed. The 
simple," God-giyen remedies, viz.: Fresh 
air, suitalilc tood, rest and exeioise, un- 
der expert supervision, and suitable, 
cheorful surroundiugs, have more than 
proved tlieir efficiency. Practically speak- 
ing, recpiisites are ohtaiuable only 
ill a sauitorium, 

A furtiior advantage connected wdth 
such an iustitiitiou is that the admis- 
sion of a patient; means the removal of 
one source of contagion from tho gouerai 
counnunity; aud when, after treatment, 
such person is returned cured, or other- 
wise, to the ranks of the public, ho or 
slie is an cdncntioual centre of first im- 
portance, becaiiao the lirst principle im- 
pressed on a patient on entorin,-; a .saui- 
loriiim is llie laire he should exercise in 
his personal habits; the necessity for 
ch-auliness, for care in disposal of any- 
thing about liim which would spread, or 
even be likely to spread, .coutagiou; in a 
wordi;'. perslsteiitly < tajight .^to mov e 
and li-ve' ^6 'tliat"' no other' huinau being 
sliaii be-Jikely, in the remotest sense, to 
suffer on account of any Ihoiightlcssnoss 
on his part in the care of liimsolf. Such 
a per.sou, when discharged from the in- 
stitution is, liy his training in the saui- 
i torium, not only impressed with the nec- 
I essity for eonliiming sncli caution, but, 
! l)eeau.":e o" his knowledge so gained, he- 
j comes in Ids family and general sur- 
I roimdings an educational influence iulin- 
I itely more effc.ctive than all tho litera- 
! tare and' flrgumQhtS' -oC physiciaus aud 
; auOiorities on the subject, 
j The conditions as to consumption are 
not only fully understood, but are well 
I recognized, and it is now an accepted 
I. fact that consumption is preventable and 
I may lie cured, or its course arrested. 
I That being so, inaction is. to siiy the 
■ least, criminal. It is our duty to endeav- 
' or, in any ease, to stem the progress of 
this sacrifice of luunan beings. 

It is iiroposed to build a sauitorium in 
I Rritish Cohinihia. The provincial gov- 
I eminent are prepared to assist.'and the 
1 people generally, tln-ough local societies' 
formed all over tho country, are willing 
to luainlain. Yon are asked to help us to 
build. Aclion, immedinlo action, is im- 
perative, rr wo wish to stem this awful 
tide of mnrlality. To stand idly by any 
longer is taiilanionnt to being willing pur- 
tieiptitors in sometluDg worse than" race

During [lie iininth of September of tliisj 
year a boy nineteen years old hecaino 
consumpiive. lie lived in a hotel ami 
wais dependent on Ids own efforts as a 
laborer. As a result of his diseasa ho 
wasMurnod nut of three ^hotels and re- 
fused admission to a public nuspital. The 
boy is now dead. A man wiio befriended 
the boy wrote as follows: "God. have

cases." Need wo furtlier ask, is this in-

'.L'he nunitier of persims invnlided from

some si.xty tliousnnd invalids in taiiiada, 
and a thousand in liritisli Clolinnbia. 

Wo have, therefore, before us the ap- 
palling fact that yearly we lose the ben-

of thousandf of citizens who are lu-

outright by death, through , this one

The preseul Douglas castle owes lis 
origin to Iho only Duke ot Doughi.s. He 
einploved the celebrated archiiect Adain 
lo ."onstrnct an editice becoming Ins 
rank and position after the older castle 
had been destroyed by lire in 1 loS. ihe 
design was lhal of a main building with 
two spaci(Uis wings,, anil had it been 
carried oul Donghis castle would have 
been mie of Ihe mosi imposing nnd nnig- 
niliceiil mansions in Mreat Dritaiu. Hut 
before one of the wings had been com- 
pleted the duke di<'d (ItOl). His 
nephew. Archibald iDougbm, formerly 
Stewart), l.ord Douglas (so created in 
fTDO), conipleled the wing, but uo lur- 
llior progress has since been made lo- 
ivards the completion of the design, llis 
grace had kept in view llie ancient

fnlhor of Onod Sir .fames, was accused 
in parliament of forcing tin; royal b.ail- 
ilTs and confining them in Ivis castle. 'J'lio 
best known hisiorical references to llic 
edifice are during tlie struggles of Linice 
and his dear friend and companion, Ihe 
Good Sir .Tames, for Scottish iiidopend- 
etice. the cireiimsiance which mon; than 
any other has remlercd the name and 
site of Douglas castle peculiarly attrac- 
tive. 'The idaee is referred to in the 
pages of Harbour as the "aveiunrous 
castell of Douglas, that to kep sa peral- 
ons was." The old castle of the Doug- 
hises. though repeatedly destroyed l>y 
lire, always rose from its ashes in 
greater strenRtli and statelliiess. Hut a 
eingle mined tower, embosomed in iisli 
trees apparently as old as itself, is all 
that now remains of a fortress whi<-h 
must ever remain a bousi^hold word 
with Scotsmen. These ash trees are the 
oldest and largi'st irc(>s in the ii.-irish of 
Douglas. When, lifly years ago, one was 
blown down, ami sawn across near the 
root. tiOO rings were coiiiileil, indicaliiig 
the age of the tree. f)ne tree, called 
the Doom tree, stood until Oct. 1,".. ISIif. 
when it was blown down. A sideboard 
ami several other iiieces of furniture 
were manufacliireil from the wood. The 
brnach in whicli th.e hook was fixed to 
which the exeeiit loner tnode fast his 
rope was previ nisly broken off, and part 
of it containing ih(> hook is preserved at 
DouKlas castle. 

The neighborhood of this famous cas- 
lle has aciiuircd a classical, though mel- 
ancholy, intei'est. jis being the scene of 
Sir Walter Scott's Inst pilgrimage in his 
niitivc bind. His own reference in the 
visit may be lokoi'd up in his preface 
lo "f'astle DangeriiUs." his last romance.

very lame, and leiining heavily pu Ilia

laiiier — while looking ou the mined cas- 
tle a Ihousand memories rushed ou his 
hriiiii. and in tears he broke forth in tlic 
word.s of the dj'iUB Douglaa. at Otter- 
burn, feeling, perhaps, that the soldiers 
case was his own:

Take Ihoii the vanguard of the three.

employ In the uiiloiidlng ol' vessels at 
the Kast San Pedro wliai ves and at

tlon asked for would roHlruin the men 
from ploketlng, loitering In the vici- 
nity of the company's property, at- 
tempting to dissuado the men from 
working, or applying epithets to the 
non-union laborers. The petition re- 
cUes that the company has been great- 
ly handicapped by the action of tho 
union men since August 17 and that it 
has induced inoro than twenty-flve of 
Its rcccnlly employed men to quit 

■Wo are persuaded'^ithat tho intelli- 
gent 'working man'' I8."eia8lly suacept- 
Iblo to. {he,-;lnfluonco « of , equitable 
treatment. Tho aim,' therefore,; should 
be to Induce hln\ by direct methods to 
shax-e.'ih.the resppnslblUtles of capital 
—to l}ecotno.-a.8i}archoldor, rather tluiii 
k mere bonus-earner or profit sharer. 
"A fair day'.s work iind a fair day's 
wage" no donht represent, says Kii- 
gincering, a true stantlard of em- 
ployment; but without absolute conli- 
dence on botli sides, there remains tho 
dlfliculty of (lellniiig or measuring 
"fair." A scheme of pront-sharlng, 
witiiout workmen realizing tile possi- 
bilities of a loss to be sliared, must be 
unsatisfuclorv, and therein lies the 
dlilicuUy, Sir VV. G. Armstrong, Whll- 
wortl) ft Co., Idnilted, encourage their 
workmen to leave on <le|iosit a pro- 
portion of their wage, and a return of 
4 per cent, is guaraiiteod on such, 
wltli an addition which is proportion- 
ate to tlic dividend paid on the ordin- 
ary shtires of the company, with a 
maximum of 10 per cent. In all. The 
aggregate sum thus deposited Is. now 
about £200,000— an Increase ot £15.- 
000 in five years. But this is only pro- 
fitable banking for the men. A closer 
bond Is formed where the money is 
put in shares held at market value, 
witii all tiie privileges and responsibi- 
lity appt^rtainiiig to the shareholder. 
Such a scheme has found its fullest 
application iu tlio ca.Bc of the South 
MiHroiiolltan Gas coinpaii.v, where It 
carries with it tile privilege of electing 
three dlroctors. Over 5,000 workers 
have convi'i-ted bonus into shares for 
.U ;iO:),ooo. Tlu- inception of this s<-lieine 
is dUe to Sir George Llvesey, and tho 
success of It is the outcome of his en- 
terprise and soUcltlitlon for the wel- 

fare of tlio worker. Lord Ave-. 
bui;y, whoso Judgnioiit must bo ro- 
siiected by everybody, because it Is 
unbiassed iiiul well-informed, has 
written this week tiiat Socialism Is 
ciulte in opposition to tho interests of 
the working man; and that If capital 
were restricted, there would be less 
oniployment and lower wAges, while 
tho prices of the necessities of life 
would be higher, hence tho workman 
winild suffer In two ways. There Is no 
room for enterprise and courage in 
that Htato of equality, says Engineer- 
ing, which is the root of tho Socialis- 
tic growth. AVlthoiit the Intluonco of 
enterprise and cmirago on the part of 
capitalists, there is extreme danger of 
liritish industries becoming decadent, 
Tlie necessity to take risks, and to ac- 
cept responsibility generally, iiiakos it 
desirable that the great industrial os- 
tabllshnionts ot the world sliould bo 
owned in la;-go iiieasnre by men ot 
coiimierciai pridiity and courage, oven 
If every worker were a co-partnoi'. 
When, as is very often the case, a 
llailteil liability company has a man- 
.■iglng director who Is the largest 
sliareliolder, tlion it Is well for the 
company and tor tiio worker, because 
tiiere is at llie head of the concern ;i 
guiding spirit actuated by one aim — 
to ensure the success of operations 
which must embrace a full recognition 
of the claims of labor. Labor, however, 
must reoognlKe that the provision of 
Improved appliances in consonance 
with developments In applied meclian- 
Ics requires for complete success that 
eacli worlcer shall utilize these to tlie 
best of his ability. Fiimlly, there is no 
truth more appHcahle, even amid tho 
stress of commercial competllioii, tlian 
that which forms the theme of the 
parable of the prolltable and miprolll- 
ahlc servants In their use of the tal- 
ents wliicli their iiiiisler gave tboin; 
llie greatest of ibe world's liunianitar- 
laiis and iihllosoiihers said; "Unto 
ever.\-()iie that hath shall be given, and 
lie shall Imvo abundance, and from 
him that hath not shall be taken away 
even that which he hath."

A Mysterious Disa^ipearance 

"Are you going to nurse me?' asketl 
OSradiiliaAv, hopefully. ' ■ 

"Cermiuly uot— there are two tiaiucd 
nurses ia atteudauce on iMr. Alngicr, 
and cue of. tUem>caii very -Nvell be siiur- 
ed to look 'after you. Now 1 must ro 
and sec about household atCairs. lour 
■Mrs. Warren caiinbt be fit for raueli 
after her alarming experience. Don t 
you think slio showed remarkable pics- 
euce of mind?" 

■ Ho looked at her repioiichfull.v. WilU- 
out another word, he walked invay to 
his room, with a pretence ol^^.QlTcuded 

Kdith did not attempt to "see about 
: lionsehold uft'iiirH." Shu Imil roaeheil tlie 
conclusion tliat what wouicu call a 
••jioud cry" was absuluiely ewseutial. Di- 
rectly she was I'rac from llu' roslvumt 
of liradshaw's picseiice, slic rushed to 
liur room and, liiiiRiUK licrsolt' rin:e Uowii- 
■vvard on l(ci- pillow, bcsiui to sob bitter- 

The 'simple facts of the case were tjial 
till- American, afraid lest the details of 
his escapade would oventuajly leak piil, 
decided that an explanation coming from 
himself would place him in a far less 
ridiculo«8\llght tliuu if sonic other pw- 
Hon^iiiiiac the disdosun;. He ■ Ihoi-pioru 
njude' a-cloan breast of the whole atlau- 
to Editli, telling his stoty with so much 
nait'e humor tliiit, aUlu)Ush she strongly 
disapproved of his comluc-t in si)ylug i)n 
Jlrs. Wan-en niid her smi, Bnulshaw 
escaped lightly on lliat scor.\ Best ol 
all. he snccooded in nialnng Kdith hiugh 
with him rutlicr tluin lit hini. , 

So mucli for the bi-i.slil h>oUs at_ wliirh 
Lester .so un'-easonably Dlijccted. As 
for the linked arms, the cvplauatiou was 
onc TS-llicU might-satisfy the most jeahMis 
of loirers..,..' Bradshuw, to excite sym- 
pathy, and to .start well, had basely pre- 
tended to be weal;, and Kdith, m all ni- 
noceneo and woiuiiuly teiulcrness, insist- 
ed that ho should loan upon Ium- iinn. 
IJradshaw would have been more than 
hiimnn had lie resisted such an oflrr 
from the lovelv young woman who lind 
more Ihnn half won bis heart. Stil . 
trivial as the incident was. it was enougH 
(o put 11 serious barrier between l',(litli 
nud- <?porRe Lester. She was too prniul 
In iiistifv a perfectly innocent adinu, 
and he. eaually proud, had the qncslion 
.of -^Edith's fortune brouglit vividly be- 
forc' hiin. " . . 

■• I'he feelings of Edith, -when her ht of 

■ weeping had abated a little .underwent 
some change.' At, her emotion had 
been pure grief that the person .she lov- 
ed best on earth could misjudge her ..<;o 
eruollv. But now anger assiiiiied i * 
swav.'- It was no longer •"How could 
he?" but "How dare he'.'" He ought to 
have trusted her iinplicity. One thing 
was certain: notliiug would ever bring 
tilings bark to Hie old level. f'iVery- 
thing was at. an end between thoni. 

And what of l^cslcr'/ Ifc. too, rogavd- 
cd the one romanec of his life as irrevoc- 
ably ended. At an age when most youiig 
men are falling in iiiul out of love, he 
had been making medical history m the 
African^-^swainpfr ' and ; jmiijles. Hence, 
•■#l>eiiC,Ji\pf9ia;:((;ateli the .disease, he do- 
Jfcloped If fe!Wc*,iisly. ; ll.B.syniptojns wcrA

'first Kin.irt bad worn ofT, be ivmilil try find some seientilic csphiiintion ol it, 
probnblv coming lo the conclusion that 
the sevoritv of liis attack Avas due to 
"the fact that he bad not lieon "iininiiii- 
ized" by previous inoculation from Cu- 
pi(i's shafts. 

.\t first he decided to leave Ariic-hae 
at once and seek di.stractioii in travel 
aud liavd work. He even wcut. so far 
,is to pav his hill at the inn .aiid. «end 
the hulk'oC his luggage to the stahon. 
Then, hoaunlcmbered tbal tlie mystery 
of .T^rd^Xrn'cHfTn's ib^ath was si ill un-

no one ever tbuugbl of railing ber com-

lOdilli's lijis begun lo quiver again, 
riiyllis, sittiiij: (111 llic edge <d' llie bed, 
drew her to her side with niotherly ten- 

"There, now," she ■whispered sooth- 
ingly, "tell rae all about it. Surely you

lot of spiteful aud envious people to tip- 
«ct you?" 

"No. it 18 liot that." 
V "But, Kdlth," interrnpled licr friend 
severely, "you are not going to tell m.i 
you arc crying on account of a mere 
man? I have n shrewd suspicion that 
vour dear doctor ia rp-sponsible for nil

Edith's pride came to her resrnn. .She 
would not have it siiiiposed she Aviis 
■wearing the willow on Lester's account. 

"Oh, dear, no!" she said, with an airy 
JiiAlfF«rence that was, perhaps, a littio 
too marked. "Tlinro is absolutely- noth- 
iOK lietwoen Dr. Lester and myself." , 

"That settles it," remarked Phyliis, 

uoddiiig her hcud with an air of sago 
coiivictiou. "My dear girl, I have been 
in love thousands and thousnnds ot 
times, while I positively believe this 
precious doctor is the first miin you have 
over looked at twice. Your childlike 
elTorts to deceive mc are iiiiito useless, 
so you had bettor tell me the truth. 
Besides. 1 aru cminsel's opinion in mat- 
ters ol this sort." Herein JHss Phyllia 
(lid lierseli no aioro than ju.stice. She 
was iirobably the most outrageous llii't 
in the Three Kingdoms. 

"Ob. Phyllis," muriniired Edith, iiliaii- 
ilouiug her policy of concealment, "he 
iias treated me- so cruelly, so infamous- 

"I know, I know," answered the ex- 
pert, soothingly, '•they always do. But 
what has he done'i There is not an- 
Dllier woman, is there'!'" 

"Certainly not," said ICdith, acorn-

Did it never have a liirtalion i« all ots

world of good!" 

Thu.s adjured, Kditli told the story of 
her slroU in tlio grouuds with liradshuw, 
and the subseipieut miscoustiuctioii ol 
her liarmless nctiuu by Lester, W omca 
are far less reticent than ulen in atfairs 
of the hoart, and IJditli was so ubsorhcil 
ill drawing a dramatic picture ot her 
lover's awful sternness that not until 
the eiul ot her story was reached dnl 
she become aw.are that her sworn friend 
was coi'iTufsed 'with merriiueiil. 

"I did not expect this of you at least, 
Plivllis." .said Editli, deeply hurt. 

•■Oil, von dear baby— you v.-ill kill nie. 
Wbv. don't vou see that this is one ol 
Iho best lliiags that could <liave- hap-

"Be fluiet! Yes yon do. And then at

will he so a"bject that you will have him

An Unespcctcd Clue. 

Three davs had clap.=ed since Phyllis 
Ilarlnnd's arrival nt Ariicliffp Hall, and 
during all that \venry lime Ijeorgr Les- 
ter failed to put in an aiipeiiranro. Had 
Ibis lovers' quiirrel merely bpcu :i r;ise 
of ordinary jealousy. Hie happy propbery 
of ICditlTs Triepd would prnhably liav.' 
been fiiHilIrd by Lester seeking nii ex- 
iil:iii;ition. Iliil the suL'gpstioii of llic old 
lawver iis to Ihe Piiilnbilil.v of a malcli 
hplwei'M lOdith and Lord ArnclifTe's

ily that would satisfy ,>vrn I'hyllis. Ile- 
forc he eiiriird ror.irivein'sK J.p.siei* would 
noeil to lie abject indrrd. 

Did he but know it, Ihe imaginary 
danger to his happiness ereated by his 
needless sensitiveness was iieriloiiNly 
near lo beeoming a reality. Edith was 
exceeilingly an.Nioiis to arrive at Home 
iirrangcnient wilh Hradshaw, as to the 
division of Lord AriicdIIEc's property, 
and. when the American refused be 
treated-;' aH,--aii Invalid . any longer," 'she 
sent] foi-' hlih, thoroughly determined to' 
settle things on nii eiiuitalile basis. 

",Now, Ml*, llrudshaw," she said, 

pointing to an armchair with a pretty 
gesture of tiorumaud, "you are to sit 
'right there." as you would put it, and 
yon are not to get up again until you 
have agreed to everything 1 Avish." 

Ue sat down with an air of rcsigim- 
tioii. •'Am 1 to be fed','" he asked path- 

"iSo, you are to be starved into sub- 
mission. But my terms are easy. I 
oiil.Y .■want to arrange with you about 
yoili- share of your uncle's estate." 

"But I haven't any share, except that 
battle-u.v with which my illustrious an- 
cestor— 7" 

"Jlr. Bradshsaw!" exclaimed Kdith, 
impatiently, •'I would really like to 
shake you. You know perfectly well 
that if ].,ord Arncliffe bad lin.own of 
your exi.stence, ns he sliould have known 
you would be his heir." 

"1 don't know fuiylliing of the sort," 
said Brailshaw. obstantly. ••He liad

Besides, I .-un tinite sure if I -had^any

"Cannot you see what a painful posi-

••Th.'it yon give me yourself with it." 

The sudden dccliiration so startled 
ICdilli that she put up ber bands as if 
lo shield herself. The very fact of 
Uradshii w's pid])osiil seemed to accuse 
her of the dislovallv siisiiertcd l>y Ives- 

••Ob. no. no!^' she cried. ••Please do 
not suggest such a thing, Mr. Brad-' 

"I know yon could do a whole heap 
better." he went on; "but I'eally and 
triily, Miss Holt, 1 am not half a bad 
chap. Aud, you- know, Americans make 
the best husbands in the'worhl." 

'T am sure yon will be a good hus-

who had a natural antipathy to polico- 

men iu any shape or form, received all 
advances with chUrlish silence. 

Hobson, nothing daunted, decided to 
kooi) liiiii under obsorvaliou. To this 
end. he slipped out (pieitly after Leigh 
one night when the poacher (piitled the 
tap-room of the inii. Bui, alas! it 
one thing to shadow a man through the 
streets of a great city, and another to 
follow on the steps of a trained woods- 
man whoso ear is 'nlcrt for every crack- 
ling twig, and whose eye does not iiuss 
so much as a moving .leaf. I'h-e they 
had covered a quarter of a mile the de- 
tective discovered that by some mysteri- 
ous process his quarry was behind in- 
stead of ill front of liim. 

"Lord love you, ninister!" said Leigh 
with genial irouv as he caught up with 
his tracker, "yon ought to keep your 
eyes open when you are about at thl.s 
lime of night, .hist s'poso now if there 
was anybody took a grudge ngninst^you

railway station." 

"Lies right behind you, sir." Still that 
galling note of irony, 

"How stupid of me: That way, you 
.say'^ Thanks; good night 1" • 

• Hobson turned and away with 
as much dignity as he could command, 
not sure, even now, tbal ho was entirely 
sale from that "crack on the head. 
The blow, indeed, might be met, tor he 
was not llie man to shirk a tussle, but 
Ihe insiileiil chuckle which the poacher 
sent after liiiu was gall aud wormwood. 
He, one of the suuirlest of all the smart 
men at "The . Yar4," . ..t? J-.bc. .outwitted 
and jeenul lit W^li' mfeVe.ij-pHel!' How- 
ever, it was clear that on his own ground 
the yokel was more than a match for 
the Lmidoiier, and the Londoner was 
sulllcieiiciv candid to acknowledge it. 

Of Lester, 011 the other hand, Iho 
poacher had no luistrusi. He had been 
drawn to the vouiig doctor from their 
lirst ineeting in the bar ot the "Kksher- 
maii's llesl," when be told Lester ot 
that giant trout which uanie to so un- 
timely ail end. A man who dealt w'ltli 
Ihe ever burning (luestiou" of beer in so 
liberal a spirit could not but. inspire 
friendship, and Lester had shown sutU- 
cient acquaintance with the CO.v secrets 
of the woods and streitms tdicOiumaiKl 
Leigh's respect. 

As a matter of fact, Lester liked the 
old rnlhan. but Hobson so pressed upon 
him the imporlance of asce.-taiuing ho\v 
a mail in Leigh's position could be cmi- 
tiniiallv (diauging sovereigns, that, lor

stood Harry Wnrreii, bis lips wdiile with

Wherein Lester is Caged, 

Warren's burly frame, rigid as .a 
statue, blocked up the doorwny. l'\ir a 
moinelit Lester and the poacher, watch 
ful and immobile, gazed at him. Then 
the young agent stepped forward and 
closed the door, wilh a bang. He had 

the truculent air yf one who challenged 
tlu! right of way. 

Lester, to -whom danger "was no new 
thing, took ill the position nt a glance. 
He stood quietly, only clenching and 
unclenching his "hands with the uncon- 
scious movement of the athlete who is 
presently going to put: forth all his 
strength. He looked toward l>igh ni- 
(luiriuffly, but thcpoachcc'sj o.v,es .-were

ous of both. 

".Maister Hurry Warren!" cackled 
the old wuman again. 

"Shut lip, mother!" Leigh's haud was 
raised now, with the action of the coa- 
ler who tlireateus a blow without mean- 
ing iL ' 

"Off her head, sir," he explained to 
Lester ngaiii,.- ' 

"I will send you some medicine foi' 
her." replied Lester, calmly professional. 
">reaiiwhilc, keep her quiet nnd try to 
improve the ventilation a little." 

He iiindo to walk toward the door. 
Willi soemin;; indifference, and. though 
he knew il was comJlVg,.tho ClutCh of 
Leirh on his arm sent S6mcthing of a 
chill throiiKh him. 

"Is there .■inylhiiig else you want to 
ask- nip?" be asked suavely. 

Warren was looking on with white- 
hot eyes. 

"Oh. good find. Leigh," hc broke out, 
"we can't let him gol" 

"■\Vlig will Stop me?" be asked, with 
the tense notcin his vnic<s of the man 
who will if needs he. The agent did not 
answer.. He", had olrcady tnsled some- 
thing of tlid young doctor's methods. 
.\lthough hc did not lack brute courage, 
previous experience pouuseled prudence. 

"Well now-, ^fnister Lester," began 
Ihe poairlier. "yon see — •" 

"I see that there is soniething 1 am 
going lo iiivesligale," iiiterruiiled Les- 
ler. sternly. "I don't know how far you 
are cuuceriiod in it, but if you take my 
iidvico you will refuse lo be concerned 
any further. .-Viid now open that door, 
or il will be the worse for you!" 

"Oh. come, sir," growled Leigh, with 
some of that .criido .Irony which bad so 
galled HObsoit,-'""You uiusin'i give your

yon are now iicling like a treacherous 
cur. Don't Ihiiik that you and your 
fellow dog lliere can hold me. 1 am 
quite man enough to deal with two pari-

Lester's withering glance made l^eigh 
draw back — the sbriiikiiig of brawn 
from blood — and Lester strode to the 
duor. There stood liarry Warrcu. still

the force of gravity, chemical affinity

toko Oie opinion of- mankind as a guide, 
there are such forces, for we cannot find

when the majority of mfcn did not be- 
lieve in their existence. They may have 
conccivod of them under grotOKqiic 
forms; llicy may have por.sonifiod thoni; 
thuy may have utterly failed tQ nndcr- 
•■Uanil their nature; but the records of 
the human race testify to a belief i" 
tlmm. It is no very great matter of 
.siu-piiso that ijicy have been misunder- 
stood. Apples have dropped from trees 
, ,ovcr since MoUicr.Kve made her fatal 
■ inistakc, but it fcranlncd for Isaac JCovv- 
ton. as far ns we Tcnow, to deduce from 
s>ich an occurrence Ihc theory of grav- 
ity. We do not kuon- that by-sone pliil- 
osophers ' did not work out the theory; 
but'wc do IvnoWthtit Greece and Itorae, 
with all their achieveigpiUs. did not do 
so. l<\iv twirnty-tivc n^iiturics, at least, 
the world, as we know it from our books, 
Jiad not found out this great lo.w. 
Hence the fact that laws, as subtle as 
those of the spiritual world must be, 
have not yet; hcon rcduccil to formulae 
is not at all to he wondered at. 

:lt is also true that the data from 
Avhich we may infer snch>'laws arc tm- 
j ;perfcct. One of the lirst things with 
■-■ 'which one is confronted if lie speaks of 
spiritual phenomena — again we reniiud 
reader.? that we do not mean spiritualis- 
tic piienomena, is that it is impossible 
to tell the true from the untrue. This 
must bo conceded; but then it also 
be conceded that it is not so -very long 
ago that our ancestors learned how to 
distinguish between such simple tbings' 
,jV ns the, ores of ^different melnis, and the 
■'' ■' jast majority of people do not know how 
•f ■•x'to do it iDOW. The domain of the spirit-

>^:,;.;Hurry claims to lie a competent judge 
-""'of tlie actniilitics ami laws of the for- 
mer, while Iliey would have to go to a 
professional man to ascertain the simp- 
lest facts oonccruing the latter. 

lu order that tJie laws of anything 
may be properly investigated and deter- 
mined, it is necessary to have a sufHcicnt 
number of facts to show that a ccrtuiii 
Hue of action may be relied upon as ccr- 
■,■;:.■ lain,. under .similar conditions. That is 
'Wvliy jihilosbphers have agreed that the 
hfw of gravity e.Kist.<;. If .fifty thousand 
stones -were dropped from !i height, 
every one of them would go towarths the 
centre of tlie MrtU,.^unloss somctliing in- 
tervened to divert- ' ilicm froi|i their 'Hence wo infer that this is a 
law of nature. 'SVhpn lliis inferred law 
is applied to the phenomena of the vis- 
ible uiilycrse, it is found to cxplaia very 
nuiny thingii' otherwise inexplicable, and 
no instances have yet been found for 
which it (Iocs not afford a solution, 
Hence the law is assumed to be proved. 
If we could get fifty thousand, or -five 
thousand men to approach the doing of 
some act nnder identical conditions and 
they would all do the same tliin.g, we 
would be .safe in assuming that they 
were all governed by a law, and it irould 
be possible to determine its course of 
action in any set of circnmstanocs. 
Proof of this iialuro is necessarily im- 
possible. Tlie inlluencea affecting human 
action aro too obscure to allow xta to say 
of any sin^-Ie act, much less of thousands, 
that it is the result of certain influences 
and no others. At tlio same time the 
experience of mankind shows that spirit- 
ual foi-cos b'or nineteen hundred 
year.-: ilic Christian Church has taught 
tliat the nature of men may be regener- 
ated. The instances that can be cited in 
jtroof of the doctrine aro innumerable. 
Only !i very foolish person ivill deny 
their genuineness. Doubtless there aio 
^ many instances of self-deception; doubt- 
less many wlinre deceit is deliberately 
jjractised; but after eliminating all tliese, 
there remains a residue of sui-h vast 
numbers, and of such potent influence in 
the world, that 40 profess to believe, ns 
■ some do, that it Is all a cunningly de- 
vised fable is to put a strain on the in- 
tellect which it will at once throw olT.

ly brilliant, ltobei-1 liigei-soll was one

vincing argument,- but it is really only a 
beautifully oxpresseil idea. Ingersoll said 
in one of liis -speeches thai by the year 
1890 tlie building of churches in Amer- 
ica would cease. In his -home .-life he 
was the per.sonificatioii of 'all tliat is dc- 
liglitful; he numbered anmng his friends 
the hundreds of pooplB who lamented his 
altil\ide towards the Christian religion. 
He lias been dead for several years; how 
anany nearly every one has forgotten, and 
of his writings probably not n copy is 
Kold in a twclvcmoDtli. All through llie 
l en lories of the Christiun Era men have 
(iris-n, who threattn(Hi;i;by;gtJI(^ of 
their logic to overthrow the whole fabric 
built upon the life and death of .Tesus. 
•It would puzzle nmst Colonist renders to 
name six of them, and of the products of 
their pens no one thinks it wortli'jwhilc 
to Iniy a copy. Christianity never "^vas 
able to answjer these attacks by logic, for 
the reason tbul its assuilauls would not 

admit the truth of its premises. How, ] .Tefferson wrote something in -u-liich he 
then, has it come about that Christianity declared that all men arc liorii free and 
is n greater power in the world than | equal. The memory of this utterance,

will for , the reason, you will find 
none that will meet the case except by 
assuming the. existence of spiritnal 
forces, or of one spiritual force manifest- 
ing itself in different: ways, just as scien- 
tilic men suggest that there is really only

Is jerlted up by a ropo until he readies

until 'he - ithows that ''" the' >un* -''has

for the basket and i.s dropped to the

Into a place whore .chunks of indigest-

This is not a fancy picture; It is a 
simple statement of life In a great 
Araerioan city, as it will be unearthed 
one of these days from the ruins for 
the amazement of a wiser generation 
than our own. riie odd part ot the 
thing Is that these unhappy people 
pity u.«, who have all God's universe 
to live in, who look out upon the dear 
or cloudy . sky, as the case may be, 
when wo awake, who feel the rush of 
the wind as it comes from the ocean, 
bringing health and vigor with It, who 
can roam at will over green fields, 
sprinkled with wild flowers, without any 
tear that some bluc-coated policeman 
will tell us to get oft the grass, who 
look upon the mountains and the stars 
as our neighbors and friends. Did 
bii.siness or -pleasure happen tq_take 
you out of doors on, say, last Wed- 
nesday night? If -so, aid you see how 
tho stars shone? Did you notice how 
a little touch of made cvorytliing 
sjiai-kle? Did you ol)Kei-ve bow like 
some rare old wine tiie glorious air 
made you tlhglo .wlth life? If you 
did not, you missed much. Tf you 
did, you experienced something un- 
known to tli<! iiiodci-ii cavc-clwellor-«. 

Another curious thing Is that these 
cave-dwellors, although they are only 
a .small minority oft mankind, have 
managed to get the idea tliat they are 
sul)atantlally the whole. They luivc 
got it into their heads that what they 
do not Know Is not worth knowing. 
The morning newspaper Is their Bible; 
John , D, .Rockefollor , Is their god— at 

to be, is cherished by them, in the same 
manner as an African cliief orico preserv- 
ed a scrap of writing! that had come in- 
to his hands, and -u-liicli he worsliippod 
as tlie -ivhito man's God. The cave- 
du-ellcrs hcliove the statement is true. 
'J'hey tell their children that it is true. 
TJiey tell them that people who live in 
any other country are not free and can- 
not he free. But they have about as 
little voice in the management of their 
public matters, or privnic affairs for lliat 
matter, as a slave on a South Carolina 
lilantation, in Iho days "liefo" do wall," 
had in detcrniiiiin.g the policy of a Uom- 
ocratic congress sitting at Washington. 
They arc "bossed" by the janitor, who 
looks after the particular collection of 
caves in which fiiey live; they are "boss- 
ed" by the boy who shoots them down 
oi.' jerics ihem' up in tlie basket; whcai 
they are in'the canyon, they tire "bo.ssed" 
by policemen; when tliey aro .shot 
t'.u-ongh the underground ' passages ihey 
are "bossed" by all sorts and conditions 
of people. They are taxed witliout 
knowing what for; Ihe money is spfiit 
tliey know not how; they vote for can- 
didates whom thoy do not want. Tliey 
never have a free minute in their lives, 
unless by accMdent oi- -||(>sl;,'ii thny gel 
riut of the man-made town into the (^ioil- 
inadc country, » nnd then they hardly 
know what to do with Ihoir freetloin. 
They chafe lo got b.'u-k to their old slav- 
ery. A story is told of n prisoner who 
was sentenced to life imprisonment. Af- 
ter many years he •was released, and he 
wandered' out into the fresh air and 
llie sun-shine. Everyone Inid forgotten 
all about him, and he wals free to go 
where he liked aud do as lie liked, for 
no one cpuld be . pre jiidiccd against liim, 
because no one knew anything aliout 
him. After a day or two he came back 
to his prison and asked to be lal;en in 
again. He had grown to love liis <.'ai)- 
tivity. ■ So. it is with our modern cave- 
dwellers, except that it is not only a 
lifetime, lint two or more generations 
lliat have made tlicn-i unable lii rcali-/.e 

diidual freedom is preserved. Tlii.s 
a day of mi.ssions, and it might lie well 
if those who are s^o happily situated as 
to really llve'in the world,- would <n gaii-

there would be found the shortest way

the idea of rail transportation had not 
been contemplated. A century ago 
geograpliers were by no means certain 
that Chesterfleld Inlet, which as the 
maps show Is a long arm of Hudson 
Bay extending westward from Its 
northwestern corner, did not reach 
clear tlirouKh to tho Pacillc Ocean. 
Capt. Meares was quite certain that 
this arm of the sea extended all tho 
way to the beautiful sheet of water 
lying before the doors of the people of 
Victoria. Those wore the days of Ro- 
mance In the Northwest, when men 
like Sir George Simpson, Alexander 
Mackenzie and others gained imper- 
ishable fame and added to tho world's 
knowledge. Those were tlie days when 
tho flag of the II. B, C. was the .sym- 
bol of .sovereignty over more than liulf 
a continent-— the day.i when that won- 
derful orsanlzatlon was more than a 
bii.siness concern, and Its employees 
felt towards it Koinetliing akin to the 
feelings, which inspired the follnwcrs 
of the old Crusaders, the day.s of the 
i)i<i i'"actors, of whom -vve believe our 
much esteemed friend the lato James 
A. Grahaine of Victoria and Lord 
Strathcona were tiic There never

But, this Is by the way. The perti- 
nent part of the history of this com- 
pany In connection with this arllolo 
Is that It adopted the Hudson Hay 
route to rca(di the great fiir-produclng 
region over which it exorcised 
jurisdiction, and for fully two centur- 
ies it wan conaidored the best route. 
History has a marvelous trick of re- 
peating itself, and we find an instance 


avenue of commerce at present. The 
great region, of which tho Bay forms 
0110 sea front, Is very different, from 
what it was when BuUantyiiG wrpte. 
tt'hu L'ort Garry of liis tales is a spibii- 

did city, growing wlt;h unexampled 
rapidity, unless we go a thousand 
miles to tho northwe-st to the site ot 
Fort ISdmonton. One transcontinental 
railway lias crossed the plains, pierced 
the mountains and reached the Pacific 
Coast. Three others are headed In tho 
same direction. Two of thom will fol- 
low pretty nearly the route taken by 
Mackenzie . in his memorable Journey. 
The areas, .only yesterday, as It wore, 
trodden by millions of buffalo, arc now 
either tlie pasture grounds oC tens ot 
thousands of cattle or fields which lu 
the season are yellow with golden 
grain. The nomadic Indians have giv- 
en place to tanners. tuHtcad of tepees, 
schoolhouscs and churches dot the 
landscape; instead of trails many 
railways gridiron the land. Where 
onco there were fords only, now there 
lire bridges; where onco there was a 
great ibho-'lafid, now tliere aVo thriv- 
ing coniiiiunltloK. This extraordinary 
change has <.-oine about in loss than 
a quarter of a century, and it haW

It is not by auy hicaug i;enerally 
known that tho shortest route to I>ivcr-

from LIverpd'bl to tliat point a traveler 
is at the end of his voyage as far west 
as if he had sailed ;U)t)0 miles to Xcw 
York and then gone west overland across 
twenty degrees of longitude. The same 
thing hold.s good, -witlt some .clianges as

impeded l)y ice coining down from tlie 
north. During the last twenty years the 
jc.inaiiiaii govci-nmonl has si-iit three ex- 
peditious to examine tho conditions exist- 
ing there, and the rcsult^hos been that 
tlio Strait may 1)0 considered lis safely 
navigable for from four lo six montlis 
every year, and with specially, construct- 
ed vessels there is.itttlc doubt but. that it 
coidd be reckoned' Uiwn 'for-- fully six 
months niiiiuaily. Tlifs is'nultb'ns good 
as can lie- claimed of the Baltic Sea, on 
the shores of wlii(.-li arc great cities. The 
entrance to this sea is not obstructed by

proach to tlio grenf-hiirbors arc, ■•vN'hich, 
j tlnnigh a i-ev(M-sal of the conditions ex- 
isting in Hudson flay, conies in Uic end 
to the same thing. It may be interesting 
lo add llmt Oliurchill'Hes in a' more 
southerly latitude tliata. either • St. Peters- 
burg or Stockholm! . 

Lawrence .T. Burpiiie thus describes tlie 
ice conditions in a recent issue of "Cau- 

"The evidence goes to show that, gen- 
erally speaking, no serious diflicnity is 
cxiiorienccd with ice. Ice is met with in 
three forms in the strait; in tlic shape of 
Ix rgs, of fclie Arctic Icefloes, /and of local 
Held ice. The bergs have never given 
any troulile, even In sailing vessels, as 
thoy are always scattered and generally 
ling tho shore. Tho Arctic floes present 
a more serious, problem. They come 
down into the Strait from the far north 
through Kov Channel. They are larger, 
thicker, and much harder than tlic local 
ice. On the other luind, they are only 
present in tho Strait tor a limited time, 
anil, according to the theory of Dr. Itob- 
erl Bell, who is probably more familiar 
with the question than any oilier man 
living, they only appear for -a period of 
about live years, and then are not eur 
countered for something like twenty 
years. 'I'be field ice is an almost noglig- 
ilde (iiuintity. especially for sleani ves- 
sels. It is generally broken into small 
slipi ts or pans, with open water every- 
where visible between' the pans, and dur- 
ing llii> Slimmer months is ilriven inshore 
by the currents, leaving a I'lear passage, 
thirty to thirty-live miles -\vide, through 
the Strait." 

The need of n new route, to the oeonn 
is growing every yoaf. It is impossible 
Id handle Ihe crop of Hie prairie region 
by way of Lake Superior, and although 
tlip National Transcontinental Itailway 
to Quebec will relieve the pressure to 
some extent, it is very I'lear that some 
otluu- avenue must be opened. Kiglity- 
flvo million bushels of wheat arc wiw

I racking ibis can lie incre-ascd to 120,-

allowed their ardour of patriotism lo

Willi the holy joy of good work aceoin- 
plished. Kar from dying out, the reel- 
ings which inspired it liavc grown to 
KUcli proportions, and fostered such .ar- 
dour among ils members, that "•."bin 
five years the order has eslablished 
ninclv-ihree cliaplers or branches; has 
I'ollccted and invested a fund for 1 he 
perpetual upkeep of the graves ot tlio 
fallen Canadians in South .Mnca; pre- 
Kciited colors to regiments, and a silU 
white eiisiau to IL.M.S. Dominnui; en_

nliens and foreigners to establisli ine- 
inorials of Britain's enemies on P.rilisb 
soil, and preserved historic land-marks; 
together witli much other useful work. 
The tiinis and ideals of llie order are 
Ijirgelv educational, the key-note being 
struck by Dr. Parkin at the proliminnrv 
lueeting called for the purpose of coiisid- 
crlnK the need of a Patriotic Society. 
In his own partlculai-ly direct faHhion,aiid 
with real courage in an audience ot two 
hundred odd women and fliroe nipii, lie 
announced his conviction tliat all patri- 
otic work for women lay in tiie home. 
"Teach your son.^ and daughters to bo 
true men and true women, and you 
promote tlie highest kind of patirotisin, 
wliich will never fail in the hour of 
need." It was not exactly Avhat the as- 
sembled ladies wanted in the way ot aid 
and advice, but the words so-wed a seed 
that is bearing fruit today in the edncn- 
finnal siib-coniniittee's schooMinkink 
idea, in the Comr.adc Correspniidence 
plan, and in Ihe .funior Branch of the 
Cliilrlreii of the Kmpire. >rorenver. the 
Imperial Order of the Daughlers of the 
Empire prefers to aeceid Ihe liroadesi 
liossiblc interpretation of the word I'nt- 
rio"sm, and to devote itself rather to the 
welfare of the Kmpire in every vein of 
its life, and in support or defence of ils 
iiileresls. than to mere .Tiiigoism and 
flag-waving. In truth, all il-s speakings 
and writings have been against the lat- 
ter spirit. • , , , 1 

The Order is justly proud of the fact 
that the first movement towards the 
patriotic organization of women came 
from Canada, as also did the request to 
the Guild of f.oval Women in South Af- 
rica tiial the fallen Canadian soldiers 
should be looked after and their last 
resting place marked, which led to all 
graves being located, marked, and car- 
ed for by the Guild, as its iiarlicular 
work. The first niovenieiit took Ihe form 
of a general nieeliug (called by Mrs. 
Clarl; ;Mnrriiy. of Montreal, with whom 
the idea originatedi of al! women inter- 
ested in organization f(U' palriotic work. 
Por this purpose ^fiss .Mowat, whose 
■warm interests Mrs. Murray bad secur-

no doubt, largely drew the attention of 
the two hundred ladies who allended.

few. if any, of whom have since drojv

.Mrs, Harslia was one of the leaders

iieart of the liridge' player,, and they 
were coveted by all who nl<cndea Hie 

One tit Ihe leading Conservatives was 
.Mrs. James iJronson. She believed tliat 
card playing was wrong and uiiseomly.

She declared tliat an innocent game ot 
bridge, not for money but for a prr/e to 
be given to the winner of the ni'ist 
games, was one of tlie most barnilcs.s 
forms of recreation. Kesides, she dt-nied 
that the C'onservatives bad any right to

Rules for the Traveler. 

This is llie lime of year when lUie be- 
comes impressed with ihe fact llinl we 
do not travel well. Or, perhaps, it 
would be more correci 1,1 say that we do 
not travel becomingly. Wo are better 
than we "•ere in this rospoel, but wo 
have still much to learn and some of us 
learn slowly. 

At the great raiiroaod terminals jusi 
now we see crowds of women ai-.pareiitly 
very suitably garbed for tbeir journeys. 
Pew of tliciii look, however, as if they 
wen- on pleasure bent. Tlicv wear an 
anxious look that nnniislakaldy speaks 
of a iniml barasscd by llioiighls of lug- 
gage. See these same women at the' end 
of a fairiv long journey, especially wlien 
they go bv water, and you will liiid they 
have com'c all lo pieces, melapliorically 
siieaking; Ibey gel raggy and "eiidy as 
10 the head, their hats never look taut 
and iriiu, tlicir gowns, whatever may be 
Ihe nialerinl of which they are lasli- 
ioiied, look luilibled and dusty. 

Preiich women have found the knack 
of emerging from a most fatiguing Jour- 
ney as if ihev had stepped from the pro- 
verbial band box, but then they are al- 
ways prepared for eniergencies. They 
never trust lo chance or iiiil any ooiili- 
dence in winds; they contrive to keep 
dust at bay by artfully adjusted veils; 
Ihey do not" scruple to make a toilette in 
a railway carriage, and tboy have re- 
duced to a fine art the methods of "tidy- 
ing up" en route. 

The niolor veil, now an indispensable 
lo every woman's wardrobe, has so far 
not been siillicieiilly used for traveling, 
but wilh ibis skilfully adjiisied and a 
well lined toilet case in iiiiiiiat lire, om? 
should siirelv cimtrive lo defy sniiils and 
heat, fatigue, rattling trains, ih.' crush 
and luriiioil of crowded railway sla lions 
and landing stages which seem to lie 111 
perpetual eniifusioii. 

"Keep calm ami have your powder puff 
ready" ought to be the traveling iiiollo 
of everv woinnii and to this advice might 
be adilcd with profit the further counsel 
lo reduce luggage to its lowest iiossilih; 

Luggage can add wrinkles to a wo- 
man's brow and live years to her age, 
dim the lustre of her eye and gfievously 
ruffle her temper. And In nine cases out 
ot ten slic eould perfectly manage with 
half the inipedimeiita which cause ber so 
much worry, 'small change and nerve ex- 

If it were iiossible lo friiiiie a railway 
livlaw making il illeg;il for each 1 icket 
holder to travel with more than oiin 
trunk or porlmanlean il is very ccrtniii 
Ihal we should speedily di.sciiver a means 
of bringing our inivelliug reiiuircnieiits 
within the prescribed limits.

Fashion Notes , 

Selected ' 

—r-'X ' 

There is lioW iii Paris a diatiuet rage 
for painted gowifa and Irillles. The iii- 
crptioii of this fashion may have been 
Willi several art stiidenls in the r,atiii 
ciimrtor who, during the summer holi- 
days, luive turned honest peniiioH by 
painting falirics at the dressmakers' or- 
ders. Indeed, this jiaiiiting of chiffon 
and gauzes for gowns is iiiterosliiig work 
and (jiiickly done. The average woman 
with the tjfcorative instinct should re- 
gard it in the light of play. 

As a rule the > iiainting is done with 
water c'dors, and in a ilelicate, transpar- 
ent way, no opai|Ue colors being used, 
riio plain white of the cbiifon or other- 
material is left for the high lights of the 
painting, A few women ilion> are, how- 
ever, siilticiently skilful in the use of 
iiipeslry dyos to use tlicni iu the place 
.it water colors. They are a less cosily 
niediiim for painting gowns and liave, 
,aoreover, iho advantage of appearing to 
sink into I ho stiiif and becoming ii part 
■it il. .AiioUior desirable point iu conncc- 
iion with the use of lajiesLry dyes is that 
.liey in no way shrink from being laiiii- 
lored. A while cliilfoii gown covered 
.villi long painleil spravs t/f lilacs can lie 
nibbed iilniosi as rockle.sslv a.s can a 
iiuon handkerchief. 

Tliusf, however, who use the water 
'olors declare that they blond logeiher 
heller than the dyos and ihal ihcir 
,-liiiiles are iafiaiioiy loss harsh. 

Mull, organdie and mon.^soluio do .soie 
are all stutt's which suggest deligiiifui 
oppormuitics for panumg as gowns.

That (he buying of rano workR of arl

illustrated in the of ;Mrs. Prauois 
P. Bradley of Uhi'cago. Mrs. -Bradley 
IS the wife of Fraucisi P. Bradley,' a mil- 
lionaire lumber dealer of the -Windy 

While In Lonilon recently she visited 
some of the an stores and auction sa- 
lons. and in one ot the lallor bought 
several paintings, 0110 of which was a 
ponrail of tlic^ t'ouiitoss of Derby, by 
Sir ,Josliu,i Keyuolds besides two Van 
d.\ kes, a Ueuibraiidt ami a Oupid. The 
Cupid, Mrs, Bradley was blanidly iu-

some vandal from the picture of a for- 
mer C'oniiiess of -Crew nnd her son, who 
was painted aa tlie little spirite.

Upon our arrival at the dock, I liad the 
Iiainlings prxjpped up against my trunks, 
and Sir f'urdoU flftcr hastily glancing 
over them, turned to me with iiuite a 
serious look on his face and asked: 

"What is the price you said you paid 
for tlicso pictures'/" 

"I told him the price— $2,000. 

"At that ho smiled slightly, and point- 
ing to the Keyuolds said in a ihntter of 
fact sort ot way: 

"If only that picture ot the Countess 
of Derby were really painted liy Uey- 
nolds you would indeed be a most for- 
tunate woman. The genuine article has 
been missing for many .vein's, and if it 
were discovered and placed on tlie mar- 
ket It; would easily bring its owner a 
f-ortune, If these other pictures by Van- 
dyke and Rembrandt were also the real 
thing you would have no. dilliculty in 
realizing an immense sum on eat^li of 
Ibem. .'Vs tor the Cupid, I liave no doubt 
that the Earl of Crewe woiild gladly 
give a five-figure reward In any one who 
restored the genuine one to him. Your 
pictures are all clever iniilations, nnd

Passing of Big Weddings 1 

' : ' Reaaon for CuUinsT Down List of Guests 

Kasliionabhi New York •weddings will 
not bo so larRci this winter. This stiito- 
nicnt comes: from .women o2.hlsh>socliil 
]>!ac(! who have .dauslltprs .:>' soon to 
marry. • , >7 •. jv.- ^, 

The reason for cnttlng down the list 
of guests is the discovery .'that bis wed- 
dings are tlie- causes of much heart- 
burning and ill feeling. 

"It is high time somotliinc was 
done," says one authority. "For llie 
last liiree or four yuar.s fashionable 
we.idliiKH have been changing fur the Not ono of late but has been a 
])roniotor of .social oinbarra.ssmonts 
and often of actual 111 will, and to my 
mind the trouble Is mis: Kntively too 
many invitatlon.s are sent out. Primar- 
ily the young people arc responsible 
.for- this. One young relative of mine 
who married about three years ago and 
had .1 chureh wedding was nervous for 
fear there would not be a crowd pre- 
sent, that only the seats along the mid- 
dle aisle would be tilled, and to guard such a contingency she Im- 
plored her mother to send a card of 
invitation to every person she knew 
even slightly, making the same demand 
of her fiance. 

"'But,' objected lier mother, 'I am 
not willing lo axk all those persons to 
tlie reception afterward. We have nev- 
er exchanged calls. They are not on 
my visiting list at all." 

"But the daughter had her way. She 
wanted a church overHowIng with 
sightseers and she had it. And what 
was the re.sult? 

"Many of the guests who wore on 
friendly but not intimate terms with 
tlio hoste.'^.'i. tinding themselves in the 
samn category witii many do/.ons 
whom liiey know perfectly well had 
no more than a bowing acquaintance 
with eltiier the l)ride's or bridegroom's 
family, were seriously offended. 

"Had only the two classes. Inti- 
mates and social aceiuaintane«5a, been 
•present the latter would liave been 
perfectly satlstlod not to receive a card 
to the house, believing that the recep- 
tion was to 1)0 iiniiteo to relatives and 
a few intimate frlenci.-f whlcii was real- 
ly the case. Hut as it they were 
cla.ssed unmistakably witli the goats 
:ind tiicir Ire wi'.s aroused, for why, 
Ihcy asked, should all those outsiders 
be asked at all? If the reception was 
to be so oxclusive why have the 
(■liureh service so Inclusive, as one of 
tiie offenders afterward put it in my 

"Now this Is only one case in point, 
but It is not far from describing most 
of the largo weddings of today at 
whicli friends of the young couple 
reach the church in good time to find 
every choice scat occupied by people 
they liave never seen before. As most 
persons know, not more than one-half 
of the Invitations to a wedding are or 
can be rospondcd lo In person. 

"Especially Is this true of the peo- 
ple one most wants to have come. The 
outsiders arc likely to respond in I 
larger proportion thah one's intimate 
friends, probablj' because thej- liave 
fowe-r social engagements. Therefore 
In order to get even 300 guests at a 
church It is necessary to send out be- 
tween 600 and SOO Invitations and to 
get tot;ether SOO or POO— and It takes 
as manV as that In make anything ap- 
proaching a crowd'-- nearly three times 
thp.t nmnber o*" cards must be Issued. 

"Now it doesn't need any groat in- 
telllpenoe to see that sixteen or eight- 
een hundred invilatloii.'- caimot be sent 
out by p. woniai; of an^• degree of ex- 
clusivenpss to f!!eii(!s and valued ac- 
quaintance."', sui'li as s generation ago 
•would alone have been present at a 
wedding In the best social circles, or 
to comprohend that as an outcome of 
such a goneroHs f-c.atter!ng of invlta- 
' tiows society is bound lo rub shoulders 
with mp.ny whom !t neither knov.-s nor 
cares to know. And aW to ill! a church. ! 

"It was bocnnse of tills 'bat the ciis- | 
torn oriffinalod of .giving Ihe \ a; 
list of the names of those persons for | 
■whont sents,-sliouId be rc-'crved in the j 
middle aisle, a custom which more : 
•than all others lins helped turn the I 
modern churcli wedding into anything i 
but an occasion of merriment and ; 
harmony. For witli tlio best inten- 
tions some names will be omitted from 
that list which should not have been. 
The women whoso namfts cannot bo 
(discovered on the usher.s' list, finding 
•themselves debarred froni the favored 
section while others who perhans are 
on less terms of intimacy with the 
■wedding party are piloted to the best 
places, get highly offended in some 

"At my daughter's wedding I have re 

solved that there shall be no reserved 
seats <!xcept for near relatives, and no 
one who Is not on visiting tcirnis with 
u\y family ami the l)i'idc(,'rooni's fam- 
ily will got a ciird lo the church. 
Counting that only , one-third of those 
Invited will' be prosoht,' for January is 
a busy month socially, probably not 
more than the body of the church, the 
seals, 1 mean, on olllnji' sldo of the 
long main aisle, will bci llUed — a cir- 
cumstance the bride lo be Is seriously 
objecting lo. 

"To obviate the look of emptiness 
which she says la boimd to. result I 
mean to have the wall pews cut off, 
screened from view, with a row of 
ever.greons and palms. 

"The unpleasant complications gi'ow- 
ing out of a promiscuous diatrlbution 
of wedding invitations are many." 

"For Instance?" the speaker was 

"I need give only one; that of wed- 
ding presents. Naturally the average 
bride Is not at all averse to getthiK 
presents. The more the better, some 
tliink; but then no aelf-rospccting girl 
cares to receive a ha,ndaome present 
from some ono almost unknown to her 
or her mother." 

"Some persons with social ambi- 
tious 1111(1 neither the reriuomeiit nor 
graces to justify such an ambition, have 
taken advantage of receiving nil inviUi- 
tioii to tlio eiiureh to setid tlie bride a

Arthur Balfour, the forniiu' inMiiie

sot as '"the jely tisli," is lirst and fore- 
.inost 'a sociuty imiii. He is, uiilikn tlie 
groat house of Cecil, from wliich he

M. Cleiiiencetiu is to me the most au- 
llieiiiic iiicariiiitioii of the revolution of 
178U now extant in Bnrope. He is the 
revolution en Idoc. He sliares its hat- 
reds, he has lost iiiiiie of its luithnsiasni:-;. 
Ho is a ,riicobiii reincarnated in the skin 
of an oiiiiortunist. After playing the 
pari of Warwick, the J'vinf;inaker, set- 
lill^' up and pulling down one ministry, 
after aiiotlier, he is now saddled witli 
the respoasihility of office. 

M. Cleiiiencean is a Freethinker, who 
is merciless in liis attitude in relation 
to the Roman Catholic church. To him 
the church is a kind of devil fish, with 
the religious orders as the arms of the 
octoinis. 1 cannot read Victor Hugo's 
famous stm'y of the treaiendous strug- 
gle in "Los Travai!lciii-5 do Mer"' be- 
tween his hero and the octopus with- 

rooin. It is bore that scandals are hush- 
ed up: honors and titles aiiportioned and 
all sorts of sreal liiiaiicial ileals outlined. 

II is in llie coiinlrv houses of hhiglaiid 
lhat liiiiidreils of society men are pilch- 
forked into lucrative government posi- 
tions or proiiiiited in llie services. Noth- 
ing is too small for the coterie of loaders; 
iiotliiup; too hif: for tliese clever, brilliant 
women to attempt. 

Two nolahle cases, one of each kiiiil, 
ma.v here be iiiciilioiied. 

The most important event decided in a 
country house intrigue was the deposal 
oC Lord Cnr/.oii of iCedleston from the 
vice royalty of India. He was driven 
lo resiijualioin. .lealousy of his hcautiful 
.Vmerican wife swung the balance 
against him, although it was recognized 
that he was Imlia's viceroy. 

-Perhaps the most flagrant . eases oC 
pitchforking by woineji rnlei's was the 
minor case of the son of Field JIarshal 
Sir .Evelyn Wood. He wns a captain in 
an insignificant rcfiiment and had not 
especially dislimmished himself outside 
of drawing rooms, although he saw ser- 
vice on the staff during the Boer war. 
One day he was made major of the Tcutli

who accused him of being in the i>ay of 
Dr, Cornelius Herz and tlie Panama ring 
and his aiitiptilhy to foreign expeditions 
has usually been attributed ipiile as 
much to his distrust of Cerinaiiy as to 
Miy hunninitarian objections to mak-

The second great distinction of M. 
(Mi'liieiiceau is tlie splendid part which 
lie played in tiic Dreyfus alViiir. He 
stands ill the foremost lighting line of 
the heroic few who stood for justice 
ill the darkest days of the reaction. M. 
Plemeiiccaii, who foiindcil La .hislice in 
ISSli, beciiiiie the lighting maii-al-arms 
of L'Auroro during the prolonged Drey- 
fus combat, and reiidorod .yepinan's jicr-. 
vieo-fo'th'e cause of justice. '' Kot' was it 
onl.v\wltli- his pea Unit lie defiiiidca the 
right." He pleaddd the cause before the,;- 
court, and on. one occasion, in Fobru- • 
iiry, l.SO.S, ho made a po^werful use of 
tlie crucitix as an argument: .-igainst the 
rernsai lo recoiisiiicr the chose jugee. 

"We hear niiicli talk," said he. of tlie 
iliose jiigce," !M. Clemenccau raised his 
head toward the immense painting of the 
t'lirist on the cross, hangiii.g iu view of 
the entire company over the heads of the 
scarlet-robed judges. "Look here at the 
chose jiigoe. This imago iilacod in our 
judginont halls recalls the most mon- 
strous judical error which the vvflrlil has 
known." (There were ironlcHi Briis's 
from the audience.) "No, I aia not ono

iiKire than those who invoke liim so sin- 
gularly lo preach religions i>roscription!" 

He is no friend of the Russian alliance 
If Uussia were to become a constitu- 
tional state, that would bo aiiotlior iif- 
fair. But for him, as for most Frencii 
Itadicals. Bnssia is the enemy of free- 
dom and .lapaii the hope of civilization

result of the repressive system which 
ileiiies to Kiissiaiis Ihe fiiiKiaiiieiitiil lib-

For ten years, from 1883 to 180.3, he 
was regarded as the niastev and. niakci" 
of ministries in I-'raiice. in IS!).'!, he 
lost his seat for the A'ar amid the out- 
cry raised over the Panama scandal. In 
lilDI he founded the weekly paper Le 
liloc. The title chiiig to the party. The 
French revohilion, he said, was a block, 
a thing wliicli must be aceeiitcd or re- 
jected on iiloc. Ill our villainous politi- 
cal slang, Le P.loe was the party which 
wci.'t the Avhoh.? hog for the revolution. 
Ill the following year he was elected 
soiiator for his old coiistitnency, tlic Var. 
In many respe<'ts he-is the most notable 
of modern French politicians, and there 
is none whose fortunes "will be watched 
with more, synipathotic interest ou the 
English, side ot Iho Channel. • . 

M. 'Clemenceau's personal nppearaucb 
was described fifteen years ago by one ■ 
who kiio'w him well, but who omittod^^to 
say that, whatever he might look like, 
lie" is 111) Puritan. The desoriptiou, 
however, is accurate today. 

In his appearance he has something of 
tiie character of a Puritan of Cromwell's 
court. Ho is a middle-sized man, thin, 
with a bi.g. bony liead, straight, thii-k 
eyebrows, deep-set twinkling eyes. To 
tiioso who look closer at the face it 
hoars traces of coiitimial elfort ami pre- 
inatiire fatigue, traces of a something 
wliich might be iiolitel.v qniililied as 
skepticism. When he speaks, his VoicC' 
is sharp and his words short, his-.gcs- 
tiii'es are decisive, and, <!ven when his 
face is in movement, his delivery reaiaiii.s ' 
c(iJiO(i<Slfti,tlie''iirtliKnsi."h,e -is a ppwoiful-;^ 
antagonist. Just as in his exterior ap-;-^ 
peiirance there is, an alTectalion or calm,' 
and austerity,, so, ill. his speeches there 
is an appearance, of the most rigid pre- 
cision— an .'iiipeai'aiice v>-itli which he de- . 
ceives himself and otiiers. 

When a business girl is a failure tiie 
reason often is that she regards the 
work she has taken up as only a tem- 
porary thing — sinnelhiiig to till up the 
years that lie hot ween leaving school 
and the linsbaiid and home I hat she 
hopes sooner or later will fall to her lot. 
That is an utterly Avroiig principle, i'^ven 
if llie chances are that the girl will mar- 
ry, she must work hard ami gain all the 
knowledge slie ciiii of her calling, so 
that, .shinild marriage not <'i)mc her way. 
she may, instead of develoiiing into a 
coiuiilaiiiing old maid, hecoiiie an iiiter- 
osting and charming woman, loading a 
busy life — too busy very often to lliink 
iiiiicli of s(dr. but never too busy to do a 
kind action or help on youiigcr women

IHow it Feels to Go Up in a Balloon | TheAmY;S4azi;.e j 

No luattcr llow nnturnliy fpiirlcss you. 
iniiy he, as the hour of your first hal- 
loon ascension draws near you Rive the 
matter thought. There, ovorweishtcd to 
the RrouncI Ijy means of sandbags liun;; 
nhont the outside of tlie cars, rears a 
liousc-liiKli spliero, distended tij:ht as a 
drumhead, 'gently swaying hack and 
forth like a lieaving, breathing monster 
impatieut to whisk yon skywaEd*, a mile 
or more, clcai* out of siglit. Invohmtar- 
ily you gaze upward at the llcecy cU)Uds 
lianging in tlio l)luo heavens. They, too, 
are a mile or more straiglit up — a rc- 
fleetiou that never before. 
It strilvcs you then what an awful dis- 
tance is a mile on end. Tlie liour for 
ascension is almost invarialily late af- 
ternoon, and you wonder why tlie aeron- 
aut prefoi-s to sail niglits, and what it is 
soing to he like — once those fleecy clouds 
have moiled into blackness and you have 
<lriflod llirough space scraping heaven 
itself and hovering like a good or an 
eyil spirit above tlie .slceiiing' world. 
Nothing but the rcllcction tliat men have 
Kuccossfully accomplished this feat thou- 
sands of times before assure you, and 
you begin inspection of your aerial 

Terrifying Smaliness of the Basket 
You Sit In. 

Hut what strikes yon must as wholly 
inadecjviale and absurdly small is tlic 
little car or basket your pilot expects 
yon to get into. The sides cf ilio basket 
cNlciul between your l highs anil your 
waist line, deiicnding upon your own 
height. Insleail of being round as of 
old. and thus porniitling you lo be rolled 
as if In a barrel in case your balloon 
runs away wiih yon upon landing dur- 
ing a higli wind, the car is reclangu- 
lar, almost sijuarc. insuring thai when 
dragged it slides over the ground on a 
.side. ■ A thrBC-raan car, weigliing -IIM) 
pounds, consisting of inch and a half 
thick wicker and carrying li.'iO pounds 
of ballast besides anchor, ropes, etc., 
scorns 10 you scarcely l)igger than a 
lar:,'c'-sii:od wash basket and measures a 
liuny ,'! 1-1 by feel. .V five-man ear 
weiu'liiiig '.JtKl pduiiils intended lo he at- 
lacbccl to a balloon -I t feel in diameter 
cniiiaining about :J,"),(II10 cubic feet of gas, 
measures only 3 by -1 1-2 feet; a 
car intended to carry as many as ten 
passengers measures only o 1-2 by 

Xo mailer how large or how small 
the I'ar. it is a model for storing the 
greatest number of things witliiii tlic 
smallest conceivable space. The ballast, 
consisting of sifted sand, hangs on the 
edge and outside the -car in bags weigh- 
ing from 20 to 'iO pounds, and in this 
manner, also, is stowed the anchor. The 
anchor is like a yacht's anchor in ap- 
pearance, anil to all purposes, weighing 
from St) lo ItiO pounds, depending \ipon 
the size of tin? balloon, and is atlaelied 
to a .voung hawser from To to SO feet 
in length. Inside, the sides of the car 
are lined with an array of canvas poc- 

kets for the storing of food, drink, 
clothing, lil'e-piesorvers and ii. whyle vntt 
of instruments. Among these, uro a 
compass and a nmp to give direction, a 
b.'irometer lo give height, a camera, a 
pair of Held glasses, a statoscope deli- 
cate enough to indicate a fall or a rise 
of a mere ten feci, and- a reelangular 
box, padlocked by the secretary of the 
club, containing the self-recording inslr\i- 
ment which trai-es on a pioi^e of paper 
the exact carve of your up and down 
liiglit. marking all the (ieviiilions of 
height just as a .self-recording ther- 
mometer with it.s circular dial of paper 
(races the varying temperatures tlirough- 
out the time of dny.v 

Coiled on the gi'ouud and attached to 
I he car is u one-inch rope ^.jO fcut long, 
known as the "guide rope," which dan- 
gles from the balloon tlirotigliout the 
llight as if it were an cnorinous tail, 
and which steadies the balloon in its 
llight just as the load on a keel "stil'- 
fens" a yacht, lint the guide ropo has 
an even more important duly. What the 
brake is to. a railroad car this guide rope 
is to the balloon. As the biillooii a|i- 
proaches earth lo make a landing, mani- 
festly the tip of this rope touches first; 
and the nearer the balloon descends the 
more of this rope-tail is dragged along 
the ground, thns autoniaticnlly relieving 
the ballast more and more of weight 
and assuring at worst a comparatively 
gentle descent. 

lOvory straml, every rope and knot and 
si)lice nhoui: (he cloud ship lias been in- 
spected. The anchor rope, the guide

at once the iiistaiu vou loiieh earth, 
have been coiled anil slowed .away 
ready for instant rise. 

The object in ballooning for pleasure, 
yoin- pilot will explain, is not to sky- 
rocket speetncnlarly up 3,000 or 10,00(1 
feet, sacrificing precious hnllast, only to 
liml yourself in a below zero tetnper- 
atnre gazing down without seeing any- 
thing but the upper sides of eloiids that 
lie like an ocean nf impenetrable fog be- 
neath you. The aim is to rise gradually

How It Seems When the Earth Begins 
to Sink. 

You follow your pilot into the car. 
One l)y one (he extra liags are (brown 
off. their places being taken by men 
temporarily liearing their weight on (he 
edge of the basket nnlil all is ready. 

"r>c( go. every body 1" shovils your 
pilot, and as the human weight is re- 
leased the hrst of a series of strange 
phenomena strikes you. For it is not as 
if you were moving upward or leaving 
(he earth. It seems as if the earth were 
leaving you. Your balloon seems (o yon 
to he stuniling perfeelly still as if held 
snspendeil by an invisible liaiiil while 
(he earlli recedes back. back. at a 
startling rate. Ymi look over (he top of 
your basket at the people with wliom 
but an instant before yon were rnbbing 
elbows and you gaze into a multitude of 

upturned faces cheering themselves hhle, 
and at a forest of arms wiiving hali. ai\il 
flags and handkerchiefs. iOven as you 
gaze, the faces blur and fade, while Ihe 
decreasing noise of the cheer.s gives y<ai 
an idea of the rale at which you are 
traveling away and not the earth. Yon 
do not feel the least sensation of upward 
nmvement of the sorl yon feel while in 
the eleviitor of a hotel or ollice bnibl- 
ing. On the contrary, so indescribably 
smooth ;inil easy is the nmtion that there 
seems to lie none at all, and'wcro you 
blindfolded and were it not for the re- 
ceding sound from ,the crowd below, you 
would not know that tlio balloon lind 
left the earth, and you niiglit be tempted 
to Ktef) overboard into space. 
How the World Appears When Seen 
.From on High. 

.\s you look over the edge of (he bas- 
ket one of your lirst surprises is that 
joii do not beeonie dizzy as you do when 
liei'ping over the edge of a skyscraper 
roor down into the strin-t. .Vs a matter 
of fact, no one ever is arCeiMeil by dizzi- 
ness no matter how susceptible he may 
be to diz::iness when viewing frran sta- 
tionary altitudes. Your own pilot, vet- 
eran of a hundred ascents, may perhaps 
not trust himself to gaze into the street 
from an ordinary sixed three-storey 
house: .vet, for some mysterious reason, 
(ho view of a thousand or more feet 
from a balloon never affects him. Down 
upon (he weadiercock of the church 
steeide whose height used to fill you 
with age. you gaze as unconcerned as 
if yon were looking from an upper box 
to the singe of the theatre. 

.\s a mailer of fact, below yon is a 
gigaiKie stage setting so vast, so heauti- 
fill anil so strange that its eoiitemplatinn 
drowns all sense of fear. The earth, 
whieli formerly seemed Hal to you. now 
has the aspect of a gigaiilie bowl above 
the deeiiest, pari of which yini are hover- 
ing like ihe bird of prey whose realm 
Villi are invading. Inside the bowl is a 
relief color map of Ihe surrounding 
country in surprising irregularity, and 
in ^'lorious shades of green woods anil 
forests, golden lields of rye and wheal 
and oats, and silvery bamls of rivers and 
threads of Ivroiiks and streams, sdidiled 
with tiny Xoali's-ark btnises and barns 

Effect Upon Your Ears, Eyes and

li.ippening to your ears. They feel slop- 
ped up as if yiin hail I'ollon in them, and 
you must swallow nftcii or blow your 
nose at intervals to eloar them, or they 
will begin to pain slightly, just as ears

er lU'essnre. .Vt worsl. however, (his 
inconvenience is but slight, and (here

is that the strength and clearness of

Traveling at High Speed. With No 
Sense of Motion 

.M.'iny minnles jiass before yon are 
able to realize all the strange sights and 
sensations crowded in upon you. By 
the time you find yourself you wonder 

if it n not about time for your halloon 
to nn,v(! forward. You look below for 
a fhml view of the crowd. It l.s not 
there, b'or all the time you have been 
traveling forward, perhnps at a speeil

without feeling it. Only by oliserviiig

The Danger in Making a Landing. 

One source' of peril used to bo a high 
wind that would gnisji a balloon upon 
alighting before all the gas couhl be 
let out of it, whirl it along the ground 
at lerrihc .speed, and drag car, occu- 
pants and all over rocks and stones am 
fences and trees and tear and bruise and 
eiit lliem Mgainst lionses and otlier ob- 
structions as if tiiey had liCen dra.gged 
behind a runaway locomotive. Hut this 
liam-'er has been largely eliminated by 
the "riii-cord" I'oiilrivaiicc with which 
it is possible to tear open a seam iti the 
lop of the balloon, causing a slit from 
1.-) lo .".0 feet along and permit ling the 
gas lo escape almost instantly, and 
bringing about the collapse ol (he hal- 
loon within a few seconds. The cluct 
danger in liandling a b.alloon now lies in 
the carelessness of perniKting tlie slori! 
of ballast (o sink loo low before des- 
cending. ^Vi(ll ballast in the car yon 
have the means of reaseendiiig in case, 
von lind vou nre ,!;oing lo alight on the 
ioi) of a 'tree or Hag pole or n steeple,' 
or in case von sec yon are going to col- 
lide Willi siK'li an obslriicliou on your 
forward llii-'lil while sinking toward the 
uroinid. Without liallast you have no 
ineans of averting sncli dangerous en- 

'I'he direi-tions for making a landing in 
a lialioon arc desperately simple. You 
merely pick your lield, select a soft spot, 
let out gas enough (o let your balloon 
glide down .an aerial inclined plane and 
throw your- anchor so that yon touch 
your imaginary bull's eye on your des- 
eeiil just ns you are about to cross il. 
In practice the proposition is different. 
In tlie lirst place, good landing liclds are 
aiit to be few and far between, espcci- 
allv when crossing forest (-onntries. If 
you miss your aim — perlia])s located next 
a pair of silver threads and a little liver- 
colored station tlial beckons welcome for

who would iirobably have e-'iiiied jus-

an exact ilcseripiion had been circulaled

It is nol long since the leetli of .lohii 

M , 11 North ('oiiiilry miner, brought 

on him a sentence of lliree years' iienal 
servilnile. .lohii had broken inlo the

Game Was Up, 

Some little time ago a young i'ellow 
liresenled himself for admission iiiln liie 
Rocliesler jiolice force, lie was a mini 'd' 
splendid plivsiiine. ami would liiive '•win 
his Idiie" wilhont ilonbl or delay, but for 
one fact. It was tioticp,! thai Hie aiipli-

precisely siicli feel as were owned liy 
a criiiiimil whom the police were in 
seareli of al the tiiiK'. Tlie man was iir- 
resleil on snspieioii. and, recognizing 
that "the game was up," he confossed 
Hial he was the burglar who was so 
badly wanted. . 

.Many a erlmhtal luis been bqti-ayed 
by ail iincouisuioiis habit he has fornicd. 
Thi.s was Uic experience of an abscond-

liaiid to his iipjier lip to curl his nions- 
taelie, and drop il iigniii in evident con- 
fusion and annoyniice, for his lip was 
cloau-shiiveti. This action, and the coii-

his name, and tlie cashier starilcd oiil of 
his disguise and seeing that he was lair- 
]y caught, surrendered, himself.

to lenrn something ot thoir customs and

tiou they miglit offer could not result in 
the lowering of wages in connection with 
any of the industries. He did not tliink 
their presence would either stimulate or 
depress the affairs of the country. 
Looking at the question from the yicw 
Iioiiit of the <'apitalist and laborer ot 
British t'olnmbia he did not see why 
either should bo concerned, 

There was aiiotlier side to tlio sitna- 
lioii, however, to which Jliijor Wilson 
drew atleuliiin It was the situation in 
which tlie ignorance of the Sikhs had 
loil tliein and the eiiibiirrassiug position 
in which they had put those people of a 
sutllcieiitly pliilanthro|)ie elinractcr ns to 
take an active interest in tho wclfari 
of their fellow-boing.s. whether they bi 
of the siiiiiD or of a different nnlionalily 
niey liad conie to Canada with higli ox 
pectations,! In time all their illusion! 
woulel rniiish and tho stern realities 
would face them. It would not be long 
before their small stock of money would 
boeonic exhausted ami, in the nieaniim 
only a few would be able to obliiin om- 
ploynieiit to which they were lit all 
suited. What would Ihey do thonV 
Starve',' He hoped iml. Tiiey c(nilii iiol 
he allowed to snifer through lack of food 
in Ibis land of plenty; nor could Iliey be 
permitted to go without enough clothing 
to keep out the chill of the winter's 
frosts and winds. Yet it was rather 
hard that the community should be call- 
ed upon to support a lot of apparently 
able men oven though they hap- 
pened to be miserably out of place. The 
whole thing was a deplorable mistake 
and the .sooner something was done to 
prevent any further intinx of tlie Hndu 
Uie bettor it would be for themselves and 
for British ('oliimbia. 

Cnpti'.in Uaiit, aiioilier old-lime Brit

point of view, Cnpl. Kant could not see

a liinibor yard or around a slock' farm 
would suit them to ii nicety. Their re- 
ligions iileas, li(>sides their' personal in-

fact that they were physically unable lo

Charles James Fox 

Great as a Statesman and a Scholar O 

When Fox died, September 13, 1800, 
at the age of 57, the streng-th and 
vigor of his mental faculties were 
wholly unimpaired. He was princi- 
pal secretary of state In the middle of 
1 Breat war, working to the last, and 
the dropsy which carried biin off bad 
left his Intellect unimpaired. He might 
have echoed the noble lines of Homer 
In which Lord Granville, bettor known 
IS I,ord Carteret, refused nearly halt 
I century before to relax his public 
labors on the approach of death. The 
tatesmen of the eighteenth century, to 
wlilcb both Fox and Pitt really he- 
longed, almost thought in the. classics. 
Ill .Tan nary, 1806, on the eve 6f the 
session, some one told Fox, then lender 
of the opposition, that Pitt was cer- 
tainly dying. 'Mentem martalia tnn- 
gunt," he salt!, unconscious that lie 
himself would be in Wes.niinsler Abbey 
hefor" till' year was out. It is some- 
times forgotten that those two great 
men. desiiite their polit'ieal differences, 
i-'-rc botli Whigs. It can never be for- 
otten that they were both scholars.

the peciiliiirities of the Sikhs. He told 
of thoir bravery in warfare, eiiiliirsing 
all that Major Wilson bad said in that 
respect. Xlicy were tho tribe which had 
put np thfe most determined stand

hull-dog determination of the .\iiglo- 
Snxon lo overcome the natives of tiie

siilidiii'il, had tnken iij) service with their 
coni|iierors. All the world knew the

But Charles li'o.x had inlieriie<i from

himself gifled with an irrcpressibh. . lu-

French and Italian, until be could enjoy

though he know "Paradise Lost" almost 
by heart. When I"ox was coiigratnlated

"The reason is thai I am a very pains-

of literature by severe study with gram- 
mar aiul dictionaries, both very much 
inferior to what tliey are now. AVlien 
lie was at school and college there were 
few, if any, exaininations. Fo.K.had no 
incentive to read, except that invincible 
love bf reading which Gibson said that 
lie would not exch5.nge for the wealth of 
the Indies. 'Where Fax was abroad, be- 
ing initiated by itlS anxious father into 
extravagance and vice, the Principal of 
Hertford wrote lo him thai a course of 
trigonometry which the college bad be- 
gun would be siispemled till his return. 
Fox never cared for any form of science. 
He deliberately got up I'lo nidimeiits of 
mathematics ns a useful part of jntellec- 
tiial training. 

I'ox's training of ollice, if compared 
with Pitt's, was iiifitosimnl. He was, of 
course, an incessant speaker, so long as 
lie attended llio House of Coninions lit

lieacefii! and happy, so that be had a 
large amount of leisure. He li.-id. ?'or 
instaiiee. his Sundays, for attendani'e ai 
public worship did not fall within Ihe 
scope of his plans. He had the 
recess, for in those days no Rtate.<!innu 
was expected to make speeches out of 
Parliament Fox was never in his lite 
either idle or unhappy. He hnrdlv knew 
what it was to lose his temper, be was 
the best of companions, and he bad hosts 
of friends, for OA-ory one who knew him 
loved him. Burke had to quarrel wilh 
him. He would not quarrel with Burke. 
If he haled Pitt that was mainly on 
public grounds, and partly, perhaps. !ie- 
ciiiise Pill was niiredeeiiieil by a siii,.'le j 
vice, driinkeiiness iiol being then vega.'d- |

Whigs to the old. Xolliiiig would indii

who could not have turned ont a copy 
of (jreek iambics to save their lives. 
That its value was exaggerated no schol- 
ar would now deny, Boilcau hit the 
mark when lie inquired (in Latin verse 
liy the way) liow a man born on tlio 
wrong side of the Alps could be expijcted 
to write Latin verses. He, cfert'aiiilyi-fitte 
Latiiiist tlioiigh he was, could no moire 
rival Petrarch than he could emulate 
Pillar. But Fox had something to sny 
for himself when he nrgiied that the 
habit of making Latin poetry, even sncli 
poetry as -wouhl have made l)iiintiliaii 
stare and gasp, did each taste, and give 
an insight into a poet's mind. Coning- 
toii, for exiiiiiple. in criticising the al- 
most incredible einendalion of a tier-

tirnis tho view of Fox, and ('oninglon 
was a sdioliir of tlie most severely acad- 
emic lyiie. Virgil wrote, natiini niori- 
tura tenehal — "she held lior son in her

posed to siibslitnte, by the change of a 
-single letter, inonltura for moritnra. so 
that the sense would be "she clasped her 
son for the purpose of giving him ad- 
vice." Whereupon Conlngton judiciously 
observes tMf IJnglish scholarship, with 
,ill lis faults, was saved from some blun- 
ders by the practice of Latin verse com- 
position. Vox bnd too much reading and 
too sound a mind to be led astray into
